Mr. Marday Venketasamy

Dear Members of the Business Community,

This has been a very important year for CBC, one in which we have gone to great lengths to ensure institutional growth and sustainability of the institution in line with the recently adopted Strategic Plan 2018-2022, with the vision, “Building regional and going global.”
We are on a growth trajectory as an institution with a strategic direction towards strengthening partnerships, capacity and collaboration amongst businesses in the region. CBC recognizes that exploiting the opportunities in COMESA cannot be done in silos, it is necessary to harmonize the interests of industry to influence policy agendas, so that they benefit the business of trade.
Our right positioning as members of the CBC becomes imperative, if we are to be part and parcel of not only the COMESA agenda, but to fully benefit from the recently signed African Continental FTA. This opens vast opportunities for trade and investments with an expected growth in intra-regional trade by more than 52% in 2022. Permit me to take stock of what we have accomplished so far in implementing this vision.
