AU Highlights Need to Boost Intra-African Trade

The African Union (AU) highlighted on Tuesday the need to urgently seek ways to boost trade through the active participation of member states in regional development projects.

In this regard, a two-day meeting will be held next week in Nairobi, Kenya, which will bring together business leaders from all Africa, said the AU through a statement.

The meeting will focus on a quick follow-up of the implementation of the Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA), as well as the preparation of the investment community in the continent with a view to appropriately exploiting the potential of this agreement.

According to the African Union, the meeting is timely and relevant to face the obstacles existing in promoting intra-African exchange.
