Webinar: Connecting African Capital Markets
Date: 25 February 2021, 1 pm (Abidjan/UTC)

MFW4A and the African Securities Exchanges Association (ASEA) invite you to a webinar to share progress on the African Exchanges Linkage Project to connect Africa’s leading securities exchanges and boost cross-border investment flows across Africa.

We are honoured to have as keynote speaker His Excellency Mr. Wamkele Mene, Secretary General of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) Secretariat. The AfCFTA, launched on 1 January, is the world’s largest free trade area by number of countries.

The AELP seeks to unlock Pan-African investment flows, promote innovations to support diversification for investors, and address depth and liquidity in Africa’s financial markets.

It is a joint initiative of ASEA and the African Development Bank to facilitate cross-border trading across seven leading African securities exchanges that together represent more than 90% of Africa’s market capitalization. The joint project is funded by the Korean-African Economic Cooperation (KOAFEC) Trust Fund through the African Development Bank.

The webinar will build awareness of the AELP and its potential impact on the stock exchanges, their liquidity and of the investment opportunities offered..
