The President is seeking for the establishment of a unified African market known as the Continental Free Trade Area (CFTA) to reduce poverty, enhance trade and provide job opportunities for the continent.
He stated this at the 30th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the African Union in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
