He said the AFTRAF programme also provide access to a global network of confirming banks and complements the capacity of African banks to provide trade financing solutions through risk mitigation in new or challenging markets.

He added that so far, 100 banks from 26 Afreximbank member countries had signed on to the AFTRAF
