A plan to create a single continental market for goods and services in Africa would be implemented by end of this year, African Union Trade and Industry Commissioner Albert M. Muchunga said. “…Negotiations are moving in the right direction and at the desired pace. We are on target to deliver Continental Free Trade Area (CFTA) by December this year,” Muchunga told reporters on the sidelines of the foreign ministers meeting ahead of Monday’s African Union leaders’ summit. According to Muchunga, currently intra-Africa trade stands at 14 percent of all transactions and there was a plan to double the figures by 2021. “The CFTA will bring 54 African countries with a combined population of more than one billion and a combined gross domestic product of more than $3 trillion,” an African Union publication said.

Intraregional seed trade is set for a boost following the introduction of seed labels and certificates to be utilized by seed companies for large consignment crossing the borders. The move is intended to spur regional trade through improved seed varieties across the region. The COMESA Seed Labels and Certificates will be used by member States to identity seeds in the market that meets the COMESA Seed Trade Harmonization Regulations of 2014. This development is line with the COMESA Seed Harmonization and Implementation Plan (COMSHIP) that provides a framework for the 19 COMESA Member States to trade, facilitate seed industry and support local seed companies.
