President Muhammadu Buhari says for the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA) to have a positive influence on long-term investment in productive capacities, African governments must develop appropriate supporting policies, build requisite infrastructure and ensure an educated work force. 

He said this in a keynote address at the opening of the 9th African Shippers’ Day held in Lagos.

Buhari, represented by the Minister of State for Transportation, Ademola Adegoroye, said: “We’ll need to actively promote productive employment and decent work, women empowerment and food security and reduction in inequalities.”

He said the AfCFTA reform would increase Nigeria’s exports to “other African sub-region, outside West Africa.”

He urged African countries to expand and diversify their participation in international trade and global value chains to create wealth and promote their socio-economic development.
