Africa’s integration is no longer a choice. Gathered in #Kigali, #Rwanda development economists, policymakers, African and non-African researchers will participate at the African Economic Conference (AEC), where we aim to push the #integration agenda for Africa to new heights! The conference will be short on theory and BIG on #practical solutions to advance Africa’s regional integration agenda, especially the implementation of the #AfCFTA. 
In March 2018, 44 African countries committed to the launch of a common market for Africa - the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA). The agreement seeks to bring Africa into the global trade space, as one continent and not as many countries.
