Cairo- Sep 12, 2022

The 9th COMESA Annual Research Forum has opened in Cairo, with the participation of some 100 participants of policymakers, academia, think tanks and the private sector physically and virtually.

The event, which runs from September 14 to 15, is hosted by Egypt as the guest of honor and current chair of the COMESA, and will address emerging topical issues in economics, trade and regional integration at continental and global level under the theme: “Enhancing Business Competitiveness and Resilience to Boost Intra-COMESA Trade”.

“The Egyptian state exerts great efforts to reinforce joint African action and achieve continental economic integration under its chairmanship of COMESA,” Minister of Trade and Industry Ahmed Samir said in a speech delivered by Assisitant Minsiter Ibrahim el-Seguiny on his behalf.

Egypt, he added, has already undertaken numerous measures for this end, including: a trade fair to boost bilateral trade with COMESA countries and an African Industrial Integration initiative that aims at exploiting the Dark Continent’s abundant resources.
