Tomorrow, December 13, 2022, the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) will launch the Amharic translation of the AfCFTA Agreement at the United Nations Conference Centre (Conference Room 4).
The United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA), under the leadership of Ethiopia’s Ministry of Trade and Regional Integration, will launch the Amharic translation of the Agreement, with financial support from the European Union.
On March 21, 2018, Ethiopia signed the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA) Agreement in Kigali.
On March 21, 2019, the Ethiopian Parliament – the House of People’s Representatives (HPR) – ratified the AfCFTA Agreement, a significant milestone in Ethiopia’s long history. Ethiopia, unlike the vast majority of African countries, is neither a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO) nor a full participant in the Continent’s trade liberalization initiatives through regional economic communities (RECs).
In the context of Harnessing the full benefits of the AfCFTA begins with its domestication and making the Agreement accessible in the local language facilitates domestic policy processes and brings the AfCFTA closer to the people, the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA), with the leadership of Ethiopia’s Ministry of Trade and Regional Integration and financial support from the European Union, will launch the Amharic translation of the Agreement.
