Regional Trade Advisor – Western Africa, Abuja



Vacancy ID: VAC-7101
Location:  Abuja, Nigeria, with travels to the AfCFTA Secretariat in Accra, Ghana & to other member states
Employment Type: Contract
Duration: 1 year (230 days)
Start Date: 1st April,  2022

Overview of Position    

  • The African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) Secretariat is the sole organization in the continent, legally established & mandated to handle the rules of trade between African countries.
  • At the core is the implementation of the agreement establishing the AfCFTA (thereafter “AfCFTA agreement), negotiated, signed & ratified by the state parties. The goal is to ensure that trade is conducted smoothly, predictably & as freely as possible across the continent. The AfCFTA Secretariat, which is headquartered in Accra – Ghana at the Africa Trade House, was established in February 2020 following the election of its 1st Secretary-General. 
  • The AfCFTA agreement was signed at an extraordinary session of the assembly of the African Union (AU) in Kigali, Rwanda on 21 March 2018.
  • The agreement sets out a continental system of trade rules, acts as a platform for negotiating trade protocols, facilitates the settlement of disputes between state parties & monitors the implementation of the AfCFTA Agreement. Furthermore, the AfCFTA Agreement is a framework agreement, with comprehensive coverage of trade in goods, trade in services, investment, competition policy, intellectual property rights, women, youth in trade & digital trade as well as rules & procedures for the settlement of disputes. 
  • The Regional Economic Communities (RECs) have a very important role to play in the advancement of the Africa’s integration agenda & in particular the AfCFTA.
  • The agreement recognizes the RECs as building blocks for the AfCFTA, which is expected to build on the progress that had been achieved by the RECs. The AfCFTA Secretariat is therefore expected to work with the RECs in the implementation of the AfCFTA.
  • The 33rd ordinary session of the assembly of heads of state of the AU held in February 2020 requested the AfCFTA Secretariat, AU commission, the RECs to develop a framework of collaboration before the start of trading under the AfCFTA & submit a substantive progress report on the matter.
  • In January 2017, the ordinary session of the AU also directed that there should be effective collaboration & a clear division of labour between the AU, RECs / Regional Mechanisms (RMs) & the member states, in line with the principle of subsidiarity.
  • Therefore, the need to establish a clear & effective division of labour is necessitated by the need for AfCFTA Secretariat & other allied institutions, in particular the RECs, to work together in every area of integration based on their respective competencies so as to remove overlaps & duplication.
  • This ensures the delineation of responsibilities within each area or sector of integration based on subsidiarity.
  • It is against this background that the AfCFTA Secretariat seeks to engage the services of a Regional Trade Advisor – Western Africa to support the development of region specific strategy to enhance the effective collaboration between the AfCFTA Secretariat & the Western Africa region.

Role Objectives

  • The Regional Trade Advisor – Western Africa, to support the development of region-specific strategy to enhance the effective collaboration between the AfCFTA Secretariat & the Western Africa region will work directly under the RECs Advisors’ Coordinator on the following tasks, among others:

    • Map out the potential areas of convergence, divergence in the Western Africa liberalization agenda & the implementation of the AfCFTA.
    • Develop appropriate modalities, mechanisms for managing the interface between the Secretariat of the AfCFTA & the Western Africa region.
    • Develop a strategy to enhance the effective collaboration between the AfCFTA Secretariat & the Western Africa region.
    • Develop an implementation matrix for collaboration between the AfCFTA Secretariat & the Western Africa region.
    • Establish mechanisms to ensure private sector / civil society involvement in the AfCFTA at the Western Africa region.
    • Establish effective mechanisms for mobilization of resources for the effective implementation of the AfCFTA / Western Africa collaboration.
