LOCATION: London, United Kingdom

DATE: July 26th, 2019, on the margins of The 3rd Africa Summit – London 2019

THEME: Intra-African Trade: Beyond Rhetoric and Political Commitments


The African Leadership magazine in conjunction with the African Leadership UK Limited and the Centre for Economic and Leadership Development (CELD), presents, the High-level Panel Session on “Intra-Africa Trade, Customs and Standards”, on the margins of the 3rd Africa Summit – London 2019, with the theme set as: Intra-African Trade: Beyond Rhetoric and Political Commitments.

The role of customs in trade facilitation has gained increasing prominence in most regional trade agendas, largely due to the fact that it is the a customs responsibility to implement the tariff liberalization commitments under the RTAs. Therefore, the High-level Panel Session on “Intra-Africa Trade, Customs and Standards” is for professionals, experts and leadership of Customs in AU member states to engage in a candid and constructive dialogue to address intricate cross-border issues, drawing upon the local knowledge and practical experience, and exploring a major institution-building effort to reform and improve customs administration so that customs facilitates, rather than obstructs, intra-Africa trade and regional integration.


The Africa Summit is a premier and annual programme of the African Leadership magazine, since 2017, that brings together Business and Political Leaders as well as Key Stakeholders under one roof to connect with one another, celebrate innovation, entrepreneurship and development in the continent, and explore diverse thoughts and perspectives on issues relations to the social, economic and environmental sustainability of Africa. While previous editions of the summit have attracted over 250 leaders from across Africa, United States and the United Kingdom, the 2019 edition promises to be even bigger with the theme set as: Intra-African Trade: Beyond Rhetoric and Political Commitments.
