Ambassador Teferi Melesse took part in a panel discussion on “The Challenges and Opportunities of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA).
The Panel was held on the side-lines of the 7th Annual Conference of the Centre for African Research on Enterprise and Development (CAREED) in the premises of the University of the West of Scotland.
Ambassador Teferi said as the second largest continent, with 1.3. billion people out of which 60% constitute young population, 3 trillion GDP, and a continent investing hugely in infrastructure and technology, Africa has the potential to be the next growth frontier.
In light of Ethiopian Airlines and its state-of-the-art cargo terminal, Ethiopia is the continent’s logistical hub and has a unique position to accelerate the pace of regional economic integration in Africa, he added.
