The establishment of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) cannot be operational without necessary transport infrastructure to facilitate movement of people and goods through integrated corridors by land, sea and air, Cameroon’s Prime Minister, Joseph Dion Ngute said on Thursday.

“In the case of Cameroon, the vision of Cameroon’s emergence by 2035, the leading role of transport infrastructure is recognized in facilitating strong and sustainable economic growth,” Ngute told the opening of African Infrastructure Forum.

Infrastructure ministers from 20 African countries are taking part in the forum, now in its 12th edition.

The current forum will run through Friday in the Cameroonian capital, Yaounde.

The AfCFTA entered into force on May 30; 28 member countries of the African Union (AU) have deposited their instruments of ratification with the AU Commission. Enditem
