Event details

Time: 10.30am - 12pm

The African Continental Free Trade Area (“AfCFTA”) will revolutionise trade with and within Africa. Whilst trade under AfCFTA was set in motion on 1 January 2021, there is still significant work that is going on, both by the AfCFTA Secretariat and member countries, in order to make the free trade area fully operational.

PricewaterhouseCoopers Limited (“PwC”) is pleased to invite you to a webinar during which we will discuss the current state of affairs with officials from the Ministry of Industrialization, Trade and Enterprise Development’s State Department for Trade, as well as the Kenya Revenue Authority’s Customs and Border Control Department, being Kenya’s lead negotiators and implementers, respectively.

We will explore the following themes, highlighting what has been accomplished, what is in progress and what is planned for the future:

  • Status of Tariff Concessions;
  • Status of Rules of Origin;
  • Ongoing negotiations and estimated timelines;
  • Trading documents; and
  • Customs procedures (import/export)

The webinar will feature the following participants:

  1. Maurice Mwaniki – Customs and International Trade, PwC
  2. Kavata Mutuku – Trade Facilitation, Customs and Border Control Department
  3. George Dinda – Department of International Trade, State Department of Trade and Enterprise Development
