AfCFTA Unit in Accra: Promoting Free Trade

Canada is a country build on free trade and an honest broker and trusted third party in the creation of the world’s largest free trade area by country – the African Continental Free Trade Agreement. 

Based primarily at our office in Ghana, the Chamber's Free Trade Unit is dedicated to advancing free trade and its supporting institutions, serving to support the work of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement Secretariat.  

The Fraser Institute in Canada shows free trade is an essential component of economic freedom, which is vital to the trade and investment that ensures broad-based prosperity and human well-being.
