Frank Annoh-Dompreh, the majority chief whip, has pleaded with the European Union to assist Africa by establishing universal custom tariffs on the entry of commodities that would apply to all African countries.
Regardless of the geographical locations, he believes that there should be uniform taxes on commodities delivered from European countries to African countries so that they are not different but rather uniform.
This was revealed by Annoh-Dompreh, a member of parliament for Nsawam/Adoagyiri, during a meeting with some EU representatives on Friday at a conference in Johannesburg, South Africa.
At a high-level meeting with EU representatives, the Majority Chief Whip is currently in Johannesburg on behalf of the President of the Pan-African Parliament.
The Astute Politician makes the case for the Continental Free Trade Agreement in his remarks as well. He exhorts the Africans to research the agreement’s terms of engagement in order to have them confirmed since the Secretariat is located in Africa, especially with regard to the Customs Tariff, which is becoming crucial in terms of destination and has an impact on trade.
During the meeting, the European Union also promised to help Africa use its raw material reserves in the energy transition revolution.
The Pan-African Parliament’s Committees will receive support from the EU as well.
The following scheduled review will take place in December 2022.
As part of the engagement, the astute politician spoke with the delegates on investments, cooperation, energy transition, and sub-regional security issues, among other topics.
Prior to two months ago, Fortune Charumbire, the President of the Pan-African Parliament, appointed Mr. Annoh-Dompreh to the position of Leader of All Special Delegation of the President’s Office in Africa.
The task of leading the President’s Delegation on Special Missions was assigned to him.
Due to the New Pan-African Parliament President’s confidence in him, the Majority Chief Whip was honored by the new “Role” that was given to him.
