UN Women Launches Book to Promote African Trade

The United Nations Women last Friday launched a multi-lingual book that aims to promote intra African trade for women by simplifying the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA). The AfCFTA aims to bring continent-wide free trade to 1.3 billion people in a $3.4 trillion economic bloc. The book titled Understanding Of The African Continental Free Trade Area (AFCFTA) And How it relates to Zimbabwean Women In Trade” was launched in three languages, Shona, Ndebele, and English. Speaking at the launch, Un Women Country Representative, Delphine Serumagaat noted that it is imperative for women to be included in all economic spheres.
