Conferito a Kiev lo status di Paese candidato. Molti i progressi economici degli ultimi anni. Ma, specie dopo la guerra, la strada verso l’UE sarà lunga e tortuosa.
2022 marks the 20th anniversary since the launch of the African Union, an increasingly relevant voice within the international community and a key player for regional integration and economic development in Africa. A crucial step towards reducing the continent’s fragmentation was the 2021 inauguration of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), an ambitious initiative with the potential to integrate a continental market of over one billion consumers.
Africa has been moving fast: with an average growth rate between 4.5% and 5% over the last two decades, the continent is one of the most dynamic regions in the world. Its economy has been progressively shifting from a raw-material export-orientated model towards a consumer economy supported by its demographics – currently 1.5bn, forecast to reach 2.5bn in 2050.
