Mix reactions among experts on AU Free Trade Agreement

There have been mix reactions among trade experts about the much vaunted AU Free Trade Agreement.
While some are optimistic that the CFTA could be a driver for economic growth and sustainable development in Africa others warned that smaller economies such as Namibia, which rate low in terms of industrial value chains, may face challenges.
This came out at a stakeholder's meeting organised by the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, in collaboration with Namibia Agriculture Trade Forum and African Continental Free Trade Area in Windhoek.
