President Emmerson Mnangagwa has expressed concern over the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA)’s low competitiveness on the international fora. 

In an address at the 21st Comesa summit currently underway in Egypt presented on his behalf by Foreign Affairs and International Trade Minister Fredrick Shava, the President urged African nations to adopt new technologies to enhance continental competitiveness. 

He also urged youths to participate in Africa's development. The summit comes after Comesa early this year extended over 4 million euros for the upgrade of Chirundu Border Post in a bid to boost trade and ease of doing business at the port of entry.
