Africa: free trade zones to boost trade

Africa is embracing modernisation in a quest to improve trade.

    Trade across Africa is about to get an overhaul with measures aimed at cutting the cost of doing business.

    It is hoped that a digital free trade zone will make connecting online easier for export and import companies.

    The move away from manual paperwork would be a first for Africa, allowing more goods to move through the region faster.
