About COMESA Recruitment 2023 Job Vacancies

COMESA’s history began in December 1994, when it was established to replace the old Preferential Trade Area (PTA), which had existed since 1981.

COMESA (as defined by its Treaty) was founded “as an organization of free independent sovereign states that have agreed to cooperate in developing their natural and human resources for the benefit of all their people,” and as such it has a diverse set of goals, which must include the promotion of regional peace and security as a top priority.

COMESA’s major focus, however, is on the establishment of a huge economic and commercial unit capable of overcoming some of the limitations that individual states confront, due to its economic history and background.

As a result, COMESA’s present approach might be summarized as “economic prosperity through regional integration.”

COMESA is a key market area for both internal and external trading, with 21 Member States, a population of over 583 million people, a Gross Domestic Product of $805 billion, and a global export/import trade in goods worth US$ 324 billion.

COMESA covers about two-thirds of the African continent, with a population of 12 million people (sq km).
