Kenya to reap big from signed CFTA, says MP

The Kuria East Member of Parliament (MP), Marwa Kitayama has applauded President Kenyatta’s move to sign Continental Free trade Area with other 44 African heads of states in Kigali, this month.

The MP said that the trade partnerships among African countries, will open up the continent to trade and business opportunities for traders from different parts of the continent.

The area MP said that before the agreement, the traders had problems in accessing business opportunities, as there were many barriers that hindered business operations.

He called on other African leaders who did not sign the trade agreement, to reconsider the idea, as it will help to create unity, cohesion and integration in the continent.

He added that the business community should now enjoy free movement of goods and services, as this will help remove trade and movement barriers for the traders, especially in East Africa Continent.

Kitayama urged Lake Region counties to get ready and reap from the deal.
