NIGERIA CUSTOMS RECOMMENDS COLLABORATION WITH MARITIME INDUSTRY TO UNLOCK AFCFTA POTENTIAL

The Nigeria Customs Service has recommended collaboration between the service and the maritime industry to unlock the immense potential of the African Continental Free Trade Area Agreement (AfCFTA).

The Comptroller General of Customs, Adewale Adeniyi, made this recommendation at the 43rd Annual Council Meeting and 18th Roundtable of Managing Directors/Exhibition of the Port Management Association of West and Central Africa in Lagos.

The CGC stated that the objectives of the African Continental Free Trade Area present a beacon of hope for Africa’s economic transformation, ranging from promoting intra-African trade to sustainable economic growth.

According to him, These goals resonate profoundly with the eight-point agenda championed by the administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The CGC disclosed that Customs has taken proactive steps to align its activities with the aspirations related to trade facilitation and ports.

 

The Customs Boss reminded participants of the need for Customs and the maritime industry to work together to ensure the success of AfCFTA.
