Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has said while the African Continental Free Trade Area offers limitless opportunities for the industrialisation of the continent, authorities across the continent must take the right policy actions to actualise them.

He said such actions include the protection of local industries and improving value chains.

According to a statement issued on Thursday by his spokesman, Laolu Akande, the Vice President stated this in a message delivered on Monday at a roundtable on industrialisation in Africa themed ‘Positioning African industries for economic transformation and Continental Free Trade’, organised by the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria to celebrate its Golden Jubilee.

Akande also disclosed that Osinbajo departed Abuja on Thursday on a short visit to Arusha, Tanzania where he will be received by his Tanzanian counterpart, Dr. Philip Mpango. Read More.
