The AfCFTA Youth Day is a day to commemorate the establishment of the AfCFTA since its grand signing in Kigali Rwanda, in 2018. The event also commemorates the unique formation of the Independent Continental Youth Advisory Council on AfCFTA (ICOYACA), launched by H.E Jakaya Kikwete former president of Tanzania and Hon. Dr. Peter Mathuki, EAC Secretary General on the 09thNovember 2021 during the Youlead Africa Summit and later unveiled by H.E Wamkele Mene, the Secretary General of the AfCFTA Secretariat on April 29 2022.

The uniqueness of this year’s inaugural commemoration of the AfCFTA and ICOYACA is that we will have the YouLead Africa Summit 2022 pre-summit Launch and a call for partnerships and participation.

This is paramount because ICOYACA was an outcome of the 2021 YouLead Summit pre-summit event, the Continental AfCFTA Summer Bootcamp for Young Business Leaders and Policy Makers and the Summit itself played a huge role in providing a platform for input and validation of the council and its formation across the continent. To us therefore, this launch is a “BACK TO THE ROOTS EVENT”.
