And during the event Vice president Nalumango raised a toast with different delegates from across Africa for a prosperous continent and a more economically integrated region.

She said there is more to benefit from a more intergrated, efficient and robust COMESA.

“Our vision as COMESA is to be a fully intergrated, internationally competitive regional community with high standards of living for all its people,” said Vice-President Nalumango.

And COMESA secretary general Chileshe Kapwepwe called for the implementation of legal measures adopted to support free movement of persons and goods.

Kapwepwe stated that despite COMESA making progress in regional movement of goods and people, the progress was not much.

She said COMESA forms a major market for the both internal and external trading with the private sector playing an important role as it provide economic prosperity through regional intergration for over 500 million population of it’s members states and a global trade in goods of US$235 billion.
