NIAMEY – President of the African Union Commission (AU) Moussa Faki Mahamat said Thursday in Niamey (Niger), that the ambition of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCTA) is to intensifying trade exchanges in Africa,
so to build an integrated continental marketplace.
Opening the meeting in the Niger capital, Niamey, AU Commission chief Moussa Faki Mahamat lauded the newly-minted African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCTA) accord.
“(Its) goal is ultimately to create an integrated, continent-wide market. It’s a remarkable achievement, and one that can even be described as historic,” Faki said.
