Apparently Kenya’s Savannah Cement is seeing more opportunity for trade with the signing of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) agreement according to CemNet Newsroom on 26th March 2018. The AfCFTA signed on 20th March in Kigali, Rwanda, seeks to create a single continental market for goods and services, with free movement of business persons and investments. This will pave the way for accelerating the establishment of the Continental Customs Union and the African Customs Union. Such opportunities demand strict adherence to quality standards including external and independent audits say Savannah Cement.
Whitehopleman agrees, although suspects much more than a customs union will be required to overcome the logistical challenges in Africa. However, the need for strict adherence to quality standards and the need for external and independent audits cannot be argued with. Where to go for such external and independent audits?…..Whitehopleman!
