The African Union has chosen Ghana as the host country for its Secretariat for the African Continental Free Trade Area.

This announcement was made during the launching of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) at the Extraordinary Summit of Heads of State and Government held in Niamey, capital Niger.

Seven member states: Egypt, Eswatini, Ethiopia, Kenya, Ghana, Madagascar and Senegal have submitted bids to host the secretariat but Ghana won the bid to host the AfCFTA Secretariat.

The secretariat of the AfCFTA among other imperative duties will have the principal function of implementing the agreement.

The African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) is seen as the emblematic of the flagship projects of the Agenda 2063 of African Union. The idea which goes back to 1963 with the establishment of an African Economic Community is aimed to establish a continental market.

His Excellency, the President of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo a solemn gratitude in a twit “the Ghanaian people and their government are humbled by the decision taken by Your Excellencies to make Ghana the host country for the Secretariat of the African Continental Free Trade Area, and are grateful for the honour. It is privilege that, for the first time in our nation’s history we have the responsibility of hosting an important pan-African institution”.
