The Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN) has released its 2019 Economic Outlook report and acknowledged government’s efforts at carrying the private sector along on the issue of African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA).

The association said the government should pay adequate and unwavering attention to the emerging issues on AfCFTA in 2019 and beyond.

“Government should ensure that Nigeria’s economic interests, especially the private sector, are not only projected but protected in arriving at the decision to sign or not to sign or when to sign.
