Minister of Trade and Industry Nevine Gamea has presided today over the Ministerial Committee of the 109th Arab League Economic and Social Council (ESC), held at the headquarters in Cairo, within Egypt’s presidency of the current session of the Council.

Delegations from member states and Arab organizations participated in the committee meeting, in the presence of Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit and Ibrahim al-Seguini, assistant minister for economic affairs.

Gamea pointed out that despite the progress that has been made regarding Greater Arab Free Trade Area (GAFTA), there is still a long way to go to overcome the obstacles hindering Arab economic integration.

Following-up on the establishment of the GAFTA, the Arab Customs Union and the initiative to launch the Arab Competition Network were among the most prominent recommendations of the council, the minister added.
