The Tripartite consists of 26 Member States of the African Union. The TFTA marks an important step in promoting regional integration in Africa and is a building block for the Continental Free Trade Area. The meeting is expected to consider the remaining Annexes thus marking the conclusion of the legal framework for Trade in goods.

This will facilitate signature of the agreement by all Member States. Negotiations on tariffs, rules of origin and Phase II will continue as part of the built-in agenda. Minister Davies stated that "Considerable progress has been achieved on tariff negotiations between SACU and the EAC and Egypt.  According to Minister Davies, it is expected that SACU and the EAC will conclude the tariff negotiations in the near future.
