The ATCG Nodes are the flagship spaces across Africa that will provide Business Support Services to aid the implementation of AfCFTA.
ATCG Nodes are business support centres across Africa developed to provide localised support for the operationalisation of AfCFTA across Africa. The Nodes will serve as a nexus point providing soft landing and market access support to foreign businesses looking to trade in their countries.
