What have we learned from the systemic and devastating shock brought by Covid 19 that could lead to building resilient and sustainable economies in Africa? An even bigger question is how can these lessons be used in the new context of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA)? The webinar discussion will focus on the opportunities and skills required to ensure business sustainability, so as to advance the AfCFTA in a more developmental and inclusive manner for African countries.
