Egypt has officially applied for the secretary general post of the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), Trade and Industry Minister Tareq Qabil said on Thursday 11/1/2018.
The move comes as part of Egypt's keenness on boosting its role in Africa and improving trade relations with the COMESA member states, Qabil said in a statement.
Egyptian exports to the COMESA member states hit 1.7 billion dollars during the past period, the minister said, adding that Egypt has a big chance to gain the COMESA seat.
