G. Economic Organisation of West African States (ECOWAS)

On August 23, 2011, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) adopted the proposal of the Nigeria Export-Import Bank (NEXIM) to establish a Sea Trade Link system to deepen trade and to promote economic integration in the West African sub-region. The USD 60 million private-sector project is intended to promote the free flow of goods as well as movement of people in line with the ECOWAS Commission vision of enhancing private sector growth in the region. On the same day, ECOWAS proposed a two-phased approach road map to address the post-conflict challenges faced by Cote d'Ivoire.
