It provides livelihoods for about 80% of the region’s labour force, and accounts for about 65% of foreign exchange earnings in the region. In spite of this, agriculture accounts for a relatively modest 32% of COMESA’s GDP,” said Ms. Sandra Uwera, Chief Executive Office of the COMESA Business Council (CBC), in her opening statement at the institution’s Agro-industry Workgroup Meeting on 14 July 21, 2021 The COMESA Business Council (CBC) convened a meeting of the institution’s Agroindustry stakeholders on Wednesday, 14th July 2021, to discuss the progress made on recommendations put forward by the Workgroup in 2020, and to develop a roadmap for the activities of 2021, as per its mandate to advocate, promote linkages, growth and competitiveness of the sector within COMESA. The meeting was attended by various players in the agriculture sector, including dairy farmers, commercial grain farmers, tobacco leaf growers, and manufactures, from across the region. In her opening statement, Ms. Uwera gave a brief background of the agriculture sector in COMESA and its pivotal role as a driver of economic growth in the region. She further highlighted the important role of women as a vital link within the chain of agriculture, industry and trade, noting that three quarters of the employed women in COMESA work within agriculture, and dominate as it pertains to high value products such as flowers, fresh fruits and vegetables. makes searching simple Ms. Uwera recapped on the positions of industry put forward in 2020 for adoption by COMESA Member States, some of which included the development of an action plan to urgently prioritize SPS issues to address low intra-COMESA trade; acceleration and actualisation of the implementation of mutual recognition agreements for priority commodities in COMESA Member States; strengthening private sector’s participation in the implementation of SPS measures; and development of a regional regulation on anti-illicit trade to provide a cross-border framework for engagement and collaborative efforts for tackling counterfeit trade in seed.
