All of the resources that you need to grow your company exponentially are already in Africa.On April 2nd 2019,
Gambia became the 22nd African country to ratify the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA). With this ratification, the AfCFTA, initiated as a Continental Free Trade Area project in 2012 and initially viewed by many as a utopian vision, is poised to become a reality. Fifty-two member states signed the agreement in 2018 and for the agreement to come into force, 22 of the 52 must ratify the agreement and then deposit their instrument of ratification with the African Union. This Agreement will create the biggest free trade zone in the world and will significantly reduce the impediments to intra-African trade.
The policy-makers have taken the lead and now they need the leaders of businesses to follow with bold Pan-African vision, disciplined execution, and growth-minded leadership. The AfCFTA will achieve its goal of growing the African economy by allowing African-owned companies to enter new markets, only when you decide to challenge yourself to become a better CEO and invest in your growth as a leader and then leverage that investment to lead your company to go boldly into markets and ventures that it has never gone to before.
