Summary short_text

The Secretary-General of the African Continental Free Trade Area Secretariat, H.E. Wamkele Mene, says the full implementation of the agreement will help cocoa-producing countries on the continent to add value to their cocoa beans to boost revenue generation.

The AfCFTA Secretary-General further reiterated the importance of the mutual support between the Republic of Cote d'Ivoire and the AfCFTA Secretariat in advancing the interests of the AfCFTA. H.E. Wamkele Mene was in the francophone country at the instance of President Alassane Ouattara.

Cote d'Ivoire has submitted her initial tariff and services offers through ECOWAS. The francophone country was led in the AfCFTA negotiations, first by Mr. Seydou WAOTI, second by Ms. Fatumata FOFANA and now Clemence KONAN. The Minister of Trade, Industry, and SME Promotion is Mr. Souleymane DIARRASSOUBA. Cote d'Ivoire has established a National Committee for the Implementation of the AfCFTA and developed a national strategy to enable it to benefit from the AfCFTA Agreement.
