Data is increasingly becoming the backbone of the modern economy, amidst the great lockdown led by the current global health crisis. In principle, the free flow of data across borders is a prerequisite for growing a competitive digital economy and enhancing the data privacy and security of Nigerian citizens. The recent entry into force of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) has created new openings for unleashing business opportunities, improving intra-African trade, and modernizing trade and investment mechanisms throughout the continent. This session will bring together experts to discuss issues such as best practices and benefits of cross-border data flows, data privacy rules, and how to leverage AfCFTA to develop digital economy post-COVID-19.
