UNECA/UNOSSC Joint Survey: The Role of Digital Technologies in the Implementation of the AfCFTA, Deadline: 28 February 2021

January 24, 2021

The United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA)  and the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation (UNOSSC) are collaborating on a joint report: “Realizing the AfCFTA Promised Gains: Fostering Implementation through Digitalization and Comparative Experiences from the Global South”.

As key stakeholders in the AfCFTA, private sector entities have valuable inputs to offer to a report of this kind. With that in mind, UNECA and UNOSSC are undertaking a survey among entrepreneurs, traders and members of African RECs in order to understand how digitalization is contributing to promote the regional trade and integration agenda of RECs, and how digitalization can facilitate the implementation of the provisions of the Agreement establishing the AfCFTA.

To this end, we invite entrepreneurs, traders and businesses in Africa to participate in the survey (link below). The survey will run between now and 28 February 2021. Responses to the survey will be kept anonymous and confidential at all times.
