DRC: Makutano, Tshisekedi confirms the emerging power of the ZLEC for Africa!

« The African Economic Free Trade Area market is a real emerging power for the continent, » said President Felix Tshisekedi. He said it, Saturday, September 7, 2019, during the presidential panel marking the closing of the international forum Makutano.

The Congolese head of state is visibly optimistic about the feasibility and applicability of this major project that aims to connect economically all countries of the African continent.

« If the ZLEC, this old dream that dates from the 1950s with Nkwame Nkrumah could not be realized at that time, this time, the takeoff is more than certain, » said the President of the Republic of your reassuring.

Indeed, Pan-Africanism at that time was more focused on nationalism because it was necessary to liberate African countries from an ideology and politics without taking into account the economy. While currently, the economic aspect has a large place in the CFTA.

Félix Antoine Tshisekedi is also reassured that out of the 55 member countries of the CFTA, only Eritrea has yet to sign the agreement. And as soon as it has done so, and the Parliaments of all the signatory countries have ratified it, then this project will finally become a reality.

The Congolese head of state shared the same podium with his wife, Denise Tshisekedi, Mrs. Helen Jonson of Liberia, Dr. Cheick Kanté of Senegal, Mr. Mahamat of Ghana and the initiator of Makutano, Nicole Sulu.
