Motherland – AfricAfrique – Terre Mère

Sixty years today, African nations joined forces to form the Organization of African Unity. The OAU aimed not only to promote unity, but also to break the last ties of colonization that held several countries and peoples of southern Africa together. Its successor, the African Union, pursues this goal of unity, while seeking democratic representation, economic liberation, development and security for its 55 member states.

Soixante ans aujourd’hui, les nations africaines ont uni leurs forces pour former l’Organisation de l’unité africaine. L’OUA visait non seulement à promouvoir l’unité, mais aussi à briser les derniers liens de colonisation qui retenaient plusieurs pays et peuples d’Afrique australe. L’organisation qui lui a succédé, l’Union africaine, poursuit cet objectif d’unité, tout en recherchant la représentation démocratique, la libération économique, le développement et la sécurité pour ses 55 États membres.

The AfCFTA Country Business Index

Understanding private sector involvement in the AfCFTA: The narrative around a successful African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA)—its potential to increase intra-African trade by 15 to 25 percent, or $50 billion to $70 billion—is promising, but if African businesses do not efficiently utilize this landmark agreement, its ultimate success will be limited. Since the private sector is directly involved in cross-border trade, it is a major stakeholder and beneficiary of the AfCFTA. Thus, to better understand how African businesses are approaching the AfCFTA and, more importantly, how the AfCFTA can best support those businesses through trade, the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) created the AfCFTA Country Business Index (ACBI). 

The ACBI is a new AfCFTA-focused, ease-of-doing business index and is based on a robust theoretical framework and data collection process. It enables relevant policy makers to identify bottlenecks in intra African trade at a country level, which informs the barriers impeding effective AfCFTA implementation from the perspective of the private sector.

It aims to inform African policymakers on the trade barriers and guide AfCFTA national strategies.

The ACBI aims to ensure that the African Continental Free Trade Area delivers on its projected sustainable development promises, especially for women-owned and small- and medium-sized businesses (SMEs).  

The ACBI captures three dimensions relevant to the understanding of the AfCFTA and related negotiations:  

1. The ease of trading goods across Africa;
2. Firm awareness and use of African free trade agreements (FTAs) and the AfCFTA;
3. Business environment related to trade in services, intra-African investment, intellectual property rights, and competition policy.

On ne peut parler d’indépendance tant que l’Afrique ne possède pas sa propre indépendance 1-économique, 2-financière, 3-militaire et 4-sociale si ce n’est d’ordre 5-éducationnelle et 6-technologique.

Tant que l’Afrique importe ces 6 éléments fondamentaux de l’autonomie structurelle, opérationnelle et institutionnelle, l’Afrique ne sera pas indépendante.

Since my early studies at Institut des Etudes Politiques of the Grenoble University, the development and integration of Africa were at the forefront of my studies and topics of my presentations in seminaries and essay-papers. It was natural that I continue to work and increase the awarness about Africa and its needs of establishing new kind of relations with other countries other than the past metropolitan and colonialists.
