About the Africa Trade Fund (AfTra)

Hosted by the African Development Bank’s Trade & Industrial Development Department, AfTra was set up in March 2012 with a clear aim of facilitating trade openings in low-income African economies. 

Following the Bali Agreement on Trade Facilitation in December 2013, AfTra is now gearing up to be the financing vehicle for partners wishing to scale up trade facilitation support in Africa.
