Despite the extraordinary challenges of 2020, Africans are working to realize the promise of the continental market. The discussion on AfCFTA has progressed from whether it will hasten region-wide economic development, to when and how this potential will yield. At the online University of Ghana School of Law, Law in Crisis Seminar of 14th January 2021, our Managing Partner, Adelaide Benneh Prempeh, presented a legal perspective on AfCFTA’s way forward in a post-COVID environment.  The other speakers were David Ofosu-Dorte, Dr. Francis Mangeni, and Prudence Sebahizi. The session was moderated by Augustine Kidisil. Adelaide joins the discussion at the 37th minute.
