The launch of the Tripartite Free Trade Area* (TFTA) from Egypt in 2015 is a sign of a renewed bilateral relation between Egypt and Africa: Egypt is the entryway to Africa, and Africa is the new pathway for economic growth. The TFTA represents an integrated market of 26 countries with a combined population of 632 million which is 57 % of Africa's population, with a total GDP of US$ 1.3 trillion in 2014 (about 58 % of Africa's GDP). The free trade agreement will bolster intra-regional trade by creating a wider market, increase investment flows, enhance competitiveness, and encourage regional infrastructure development as well as pioneer the integration of the African continent.
