Way forward

Services continue to grow exponentially as technology evolves and communication advances. Therefore, the development of RSIGs is a positive step towards establishing an inclusive participation of services industries in the regional integration agenda. It advocates the services sector especially in relation to the government, addressing issues in areas of policy reforms and trade barriers. Internally, it serves as a platform that facilitates exchange of information on services and increases coordination among members. It perfectly fits in the existing services institutional landscape of the region as it builds linkages and increases coherence between the services businesses, associations and stakeholders. The formation of COMESA regional coalition is a step the business community must take to refocus services business organizations, enhance the private sector involvement in the policy–making decisions and reap the benefits emerging from the dynamic nature of services regionally and internationally.
