A call from the confused family. When I got home after delivering my son safely, I heard something unexpected from my husband. Law should be readily available and accessible. This is a matter of public communication and information and institutional development. The government should actively publish and update legal systems, especially those related to trade, to create a more favorable environment and increase public trust and confidence in the legal system. According to the Bill of Rights, the African Free Trade Agreement now addresses glaring problems that previous intra-regional agreements have created or at least failed to address. According to the Bill of Rights, intraregional trade agreements to date have tended to separate the needs of businesses from those of the general public and “have been ineffective in meeting the needs of businesses”. The current African Free Trade Agreement must therefore remedy the shortcomings of previous trade agreements. The public perception, reflected in the campaigns of various institutions and organizations, is that part of what has set Africa back economically relative to other regions is its inability to establish domestic trade mechanisms. But recognizing these shortcomings also recognizes the significant economic opportunities associated with promoting trade, alleviating poverty, providing a broader tax base, and harnessing unused or misused resources.
