During the 13th Extraordinary Session of the AU Heads of State and Government on the AfCFTA, which approved the launch of the AfCFTA as of January 1st, Morocco reaffirmed its commitment to implementing the agreement as a pillar of African economic integration.

The Kingdom also reiterated its readiness to contribute to the advancement of work leading to the operationalization of the AfCFTA and the start of trade exchanges.
