President Nana Akufo-Addo ended the third phase of his tour of the ECOWAS countries with a day’s working visit to the Republic of Niger on Tuesday.
At a meeting with Nigerien President, Issoufou Mahamadou, the two leaders pledged to strengthen the ties of cooperation that exist between their two countries.
The president hinted of holding for the first time in 31 years, a Permanent Joint Commission on Co-operation to serve as the legal framework to address their trade and investment concerns, in Ghana this year.
Expressing concern about the low volumes of trade between the two countries, President Akufo-Addo stressed the critical importance the regional market of ECOWAS represents to the development of West Africa.
He noted that the region, whose population is set to hit 500 million in 20 years, represents a genuine market with immense opportunities for trade, enterprise and ingenuity.
To this end, the President urged his Nigerien counterpart to help in the advocacy for the implementation of the ECOWAS Trade liberalisation Scheme (ETLS), which is expected to eliminate the impediments and challenges associated with the free movement of goods, persons and services in the region.
