AfTra Funding Partners

Since its inception in 2012, AfTra has proved that there is a high demand for trade-related support in RMCs and RECs to unlock Africa’s trade potential.

Launched with seed capital provided by the Government of Canada to fund the first three years, the vision has always been to broaden AfTra’s donor base and become a multi-donor trust fund. You can view the Government of Canada's website here.

Gearing up to be the go-to financing vehicle for trade facilitation in Africa

AfTra is already the Bank’s main financing facility for technical assistance on trade in Africa and aims to be the continent’s foremost facility in this area. 

AfTra’s focus on trade facilitation comes within the context of the Trade Facilitation Agreement reached at the Bali Ministerial Conference in December 2013, which promotes donor engagement to support low-income countries on this issue. 

Our aim now is to work with a widening donor base to positively impact trade outcomes throughout Africa.
