"A Computational Framework to Select Sensitive Products at HS Level: Tariff Line: Implications for the African Continental Free Trade Area"
by Zamani, Omid, Tatjana Döbeling and Janine Pelikan

The African Free Trade Area seeks to create the world's most ambitious free trade zone. Connecting 55 country members, with an estimated combined GDP of 3.4 trillion USD, the corresponding agreement provides a framework for the trade liberalization of goods and services (Abrego et al., 2020). The AfCFTA is the result of years of negotiations in pursuit of a common vision, formed in 2012 with the aim of “Boosting Intra-African Trade” by eliminating trade and investment barriers between African states (Vanzetti et al., 2018). With a total population of 1.3 billion, people the AfCFTA will be the largest free trade area in the world. Its full implementation has the potential to stimulate intra-trade levels which may lead to economic welfare improvement by helping raise productivity and investment, thereby increasing income levels and reducing poverty (Pasara and Diko, 2020; Abrego et al., 2020).
