AfCFTA to launch Africa Trade Gateway digital platform in coming months
African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) Secretary General Wamkela Mene said his organisation will launch the Africa Trade Gateway platform for small and medium enterprises in Africa.
The platform is a digital product ecosystem that includes a customer due diligence system, a trade information portal for finding supply chains and a trade regulation portal that brings together all the banking, trade and investment regulations in African countries. The pan-African payment system and the protocol used to make payments worldwide are also part of the Africa Trade Gateway platform.
Previously, Afreximbank CEO Benedict Orama said that the Africa Trade Gateway platform would also be available to Russian businesses.
