  • Description

    At the formative meeting of the Federation of West African Chambers of Commerce in Lagos, Nigeria, on Wednesday (August 16), hopes were expressed that the organisation would be the first step towards a West African economic community -- similar to the economic blocs of Europe and East Africa.

    The two-day conference, attended by Chamber of Commerce delegates from Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Ghana and Liberia, heard that Britain's entry to the European Common Market next year was a decisive factor in the need for a West African community. Delegates from a number of French-speaking West African countries were present at the meeting as observers.
