In a time when processes of opening and regional integration elsewhere seem to give way to the tightening of barriers and protectionist tendencies, on March 21th the African countries signed a historical agreement to launch AfCFTA, the world's largest free-trade area in terms of the number of Contracting Parties. Is this a real breakthrough for the country's development? What benefits could gain an acceding country like Ethiopia - with a high manufacturing potential and an ambitious infrastructural investment? What instead are the implications for countries which have not signed the agreement, such as Nigeria?
Breakfast Briefings are in-depth, update and networking meetings by The Centre for Business Scenarios by ISPI, also in collaboration with Assolombarda, on topical issues from the international economic and political scene. They are conceived for businesses and aim at detecting emerging trends, to identify both opportunities and structural risk factors.
The length and the restricted format of the meetings ensure debate and discussion with the experts and interaction among participants.
Attendance is limited and by invitation only.
