BRICS workshop to be hosted on 31 May 2023 in Durban

It will provide an important platform for dialogue and collaboration on AFCFTA implementation

BRICS workshop under the title: “Addressing Africa's Impending Trade sudden changes amidst AFCFTA Implementation: Strategies for inclusive Sustainable Development” is to be hosted on 31 May 2023 by the Durban university of technology in South Africa, TV BRICS is a media partner.

The workshop on “Addressing Africa's Impending Trade sudden changes amidst AFCFTA Implementation: Strategies for inclusive Sustainable Development” will provide an important platform for dialogue and collaboration on this important issue facing the region. By bringing together policymakers, experts, and practitioners from across Africa and around the world, the seminar will generate new ideas and recommendations for managing fair trade and an inclusive AFCFTA agenda and promoting sustainable economic growth in Africa.

Negotiations will cover the remaining services sectors (business, distribution, education, IPR, environmental health and related social services and the recreational, cultural and sports services). As per the Roadmap, this round of negotiations is due to be completed in 2023.

The E-commerce Protocol, also known as the AFCFTA Protocol on Digital Trade, aims to promote the emergence of African-owned e-commerce platforms at national, regional and continental levels.

The negotiators of the AFCFTA must determine how in-depth to regulate these issues within the E-commerce Protocol. Another important aspect for consideration is the regulation of online dispute settlement. The use of e-commerce channels and platforms varies from country to country. There is the additional complication that Phases II and III of the negotiations have now been merged int

The objectives of this workshop are to:

- explore strategies for integrated AFCFTA implementation that balances meeting SDG goals and alternative financing models;

- discuss the role of sustainable development and fostering economic growth;

- foster dialogue and collaboration between African nations, BRICS, AU, Developing South, international organisations, and development finance institutions.
