Tripartite Agreement Africa

By : -

Last June, at a summit in Cairo, the heads of state and government of three of them – EAC, COMESA and SADC – launched the Tripartite Free Trade Area (TFTA), which brings together 26 countries representing a total population of 632 million people, or 57% of Africa`s population, and a gross domestic product (GDP) of $1.3 trillion (2014 figures). The launch of NAFTA was the culmination of a process that began in 2008 with the first tripartite summit in Kampala, Uganda. However, it is not yet time to celebrate. The agreement must be ratified by 14 members before entering into force. After its entry into force, the agreement is open for accession by other AU Member States. The Tripartite Free Trade Agreement brings together 28 member countries of COMESA, the East African Community (EAC) and the Southern African Development Community (SADC). The Tripartite Free Trade Area (CFTA) is a proposed African free trade agreement between the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and the East African Community (EAC). [1] Given that the EAC is a “common market”, sugar from Uganda is expected to enter Kenya without barriers, but Kenya`s suspicions that Uganda may attempt to eliminate cheap sugars from third countries have made it difficult to do so. For its part, Uganda has limited imports of Kenyan milk into the country. During their meeting, the two presidents agreed to remove these obstacles, but immediately afterwards, the Kenyan political opposition began to beat the drum against the “deal”. In fact, there were no agreements, but only an obligation between the two leaders to maintain the principles of the ETE Treaty and its protocols.

Eight countries have ratified the agreement to date and six others to reach the threshold of 14 needed for the entry into force of the agreement. The objective of the COMESA-CAAC-SADC Tripartite Free Trade Agreement is to create the Tripartite Free Trade Area and achieve the customs union of the 26 member countries. Namibia is the most recent to ratify the ASNP agreement and today the country`s High Commissioner for Zambia, Mr. Siyave Haindongo, deposited the instrument of ratification with the Chairman of the Tripartite Task Force Chileshe Kapwepwe, Secretary of COMESA. . . .
