ADF, Smart African Alliance join forces to boost digital trade in Africa

The African Development Fund (ADF), in partnership with the Smart Africa Alliance, has launched a new project to drive digital trade in Africa.

The $1.5 million project will support the implementation of digital trade facilitation systems in several African countries. Burundi, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania, and Zambia, are among the countries that will benefit from the project. The DATC project is expected to improve trade efficiency in Africa by reducing transaction costs, enhancing predictability, and reducing trade-related risks.
