15 May 2014: A key topic of discussion among global leaders at the 24th World Economic Forum on Africa was the need for free movement of talent and goods across Africa, in order to significantly strengthen businesses and boost intra-Africa trade on the continent.

This sentiment is echoed by Charles Brewer, MD of DHL Express Sub-Saharan Africa, who attended the forum which took place in Abuja, Nigeria from 7 – 9 May 2014. “There was a collective consensus among African leaders on the topic of mobility in Africa, as well as the importance of efficient border and visa policies. We have seen good follow-up particularly in East Africa and it is imperative to continue to work on the border and customs environment to grow intra-Africa trade.” says Brewer.
