This protocol has several specific objectives to assist this:

  • progressive elimination of tariffs;

  • progressive elimination of non-tariff barriers;

  • enhanced efficiency of customs procedures, trade facilitation and transit;

  • enhanced cooperation in the areas of technical barriers to trade and sanitary and phytosanitary measures;

  • development and promotion of regional and continental value chains; and

  • enhanced socio-economic development, diversification and industrialisation across Africa.
