International Economics assisted The Royal Danish Embassy Addis Ababa in the formulation of supporting programmes for the implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) in the period 2019-2022. This included provision of an independent assessment and quality assurance of the design and documentation of the envisaged Danish support in accordance with existing Danish Aid Management Guidelines from technical, management, monitoring and risk management points of view.

The ultimate goal of the Danish support is to contribute to the negotiation, implementation and operationalisation of the AfCFTA so that the benefits of the agreement will reach the entire Continent’s population.
