The Honourable Minister, Okechukwu Enelamah led the team to the Informal WTO Ministerial Gathering in Marrakech, Morocco, where he had talks with counterparts from Iran; host country, Morocco and other members of the KENSA Group (Kenya, Egypt and South Africa).
At the ministerial meeting chaired by HM Enelamah, the conversation centred on the construction of a single market in Africa. Enelamah reiterated the need for a strategy to stay relevant in the midst of diversity. Here’s the biggest takeaway from his speech: “This is a moment when our approaches must combine realism with pragmatism, non-dogmatism and acceptance of responsibility. In Nigeria, we have decided to accept responsibility.”
The Minister also met with China’s Vice Minister of Commerce, Wang Shouwen; Nigeria’s Ambassador to Morocco, Baba Garba and the Director General/Chief Negotiator, Ambassador Osakwe.
