Dr. Amany Asfour
Dear Members of the Business Community,
It is a great privilege to welcome you to the COMESA Business Forum website; the information portal for private sector in COMESA.
As the private sector, we have often communicated about mastering our potential to trade competitively amongst each other. As the policy makers and drivers of large corporations can testify, a country’s wealth is only strengthened through a strong market driven economy. SMEs make up over 90% of our employment base as a region. The role of women and youth as drivers of the economy in the SMEs sector should be underscored. The manufacturing sector is driven by strong Multi National Corporations that need to take a strategic approach to localize their value chains, in order to tap into Africa’s manpower and technical expertise and productivity, and hence selling to regional and international markets
