A champion of the AfCFTA, Afreximbank president Benedict Oramah has made the bank the financial arm of the project. To carry out his mission, he relies on people who support the integration of the continental market.

Since the March 2018 signing of the intra-African free-trade agreement in Kigali, and the launch, three years later, of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), the African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) has been at the forefront of continental economic cooperation. The African Union leads the project from a political standpoint, with the bank as its financial arm.
