What: The inaugural Africa Private Sector Summit (APSS) was held in March 2020 under the theme “Righting the Wrongs of Doing Business under the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) Agreement.” The conversations focused on the collaborative role of the private sector, governments, international bodies, academia, and Regional Economic Communities (RECs) in creating an enabling environment for facilitating intra-African trade in readiness for the AfCFTA
