Majority Chief Whip and Nsawam-Adoagyiri MP, Frank Annoh-Dompreh

Majority Chief Whip, Frank Annoh-Dompreh, has called for the establishment of a digital platform for trade access on the African continent.

Describing the digital platform as a “crucial” mechanism, he believes it would led to more seamless trade interaction on the continent and would further enhance the integration of Africa’s trade blocs as the African Free Trade agreement picks up.

Taking to his Twitter page he called on the AU to facilitate the mechanism by boosting it.

Also, “Member countries should buy into this innovative approach.”

His call comes at a time where economies across the globe are reeling from the economic aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic and the ongoing Ukraine war.

With the risk of recessions hitting some economies due to their rapidly shrinking economies, Annoh-Dompreh’s call emphasises the need for a larger market for African economies through the rapid integration of continental trade blocs to offset the risk of recession often weak African economies may face in the coming months.
