WTO members discussed the potential of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) in supporting economic growth and development in least-developed countries at a meeting of the Sub-Committee on Least-Developed Countries (LDCs) on 20 October. In addition to Djibouti and Togo’s experiences with the AfCFTA, the Sub-Committee also heard about trade initiatives by members and partner organizations to help LDCs become more active in regional and global trade.
