Praia, 05 Jan (Inforpress) – The president of the Sotavento Chamber of Commerce (CCS), Jorge Spencer Lima, considered that the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA) will be a “great measure and a good agreement ”if effectively applied.
The entry into force, on January 1st, of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement, for this responsible, is “good news, a good big measure”, justifying that it had been awaiting its ratification for a long time.
However, he stressed, CCS wants to know what the political position will be, “clear and real for the countries”, especially the African “big countries” that command trade, such as Nigeria, Egypt, South Africa and Angola, in the application this agreement.
The applicability of this measure, according to the president of the CCS, depends on the political powers, but he pointed out that at the moment there is no “strong and coherent” African unity, which defends Africa and African principles.
