For decades, African nations have talked about the importance of intra-African trade, but have overwhelmingly not yet been able to make trade throughout the continent a reality. There are real challenges that hinder intra-African trade, but they are not such a hindrance that a resolution cannot be found.

In this episode, host John Akhile, author of Unleashed: a New Paradigm of African Trade with the World, discusses what challenges are impeding intra-African trade. He focuses on the main issue of currency inconvertibility and outlines how Evidence Accounts trade can offer the capability of trading within the African continent without hard currency.
