"A macro-level analysis of AfCFTA for Central Africa: Linking Trade Policy to Industrialization and Diversification Plans"
by Carrico, Caitlyn

Established on 1 January 2021, the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) is a key opportunity for Central African governments to build upon regional integration strategies, aligning their national trade strategies as well as industrial strategies, to enhance intra-regional trade as well as trade with continental partners. For an agreement as comprehensive as the AfCFTA, implementing evidence-based policies necessitate comprehensive analysis of plausible economic outcomes of policy strategies for the AfCFTA and in concordance with national industrialization strategies. In this paper, being the most comprehensive CGE analysis for Central Africa to-date, we model the impact of the AfCFTA on Cameroun, Tchad, the Congo, Gabon, and Rwanda, with consideration of three possible scenarios of structural change for the region.
