FRANCISTOWN: The ideals of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCTA) can be achieved by the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in the transport sector between countries.

Director of Transport Policy and Planning in the Ministry of Transport and Public Works, Orapeleng Mosigi said at the Friday launch of the Through Working Trains (TWT) here that rail is one mode of transport that can integrate countries and regions in general for the benefit of people.

Mosigi was giving a keynote address where Botswana Railways (BR) and National Railways of Zimbabwe (NRZ) signed a MoU in respect of the TWT. The AfCFTA agreement is envisaged to create the largest free trade area in the world measured by the number of countries participating. Mosigi stated that the signing of the MoU between BR and NRZ signifies that the relationship between the two railway entities is deep and rich.
