The International Food & Agricultural Trade Policy Council (IPC), in conjunction with the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, hosted a discussion on what Africa stands to gain from the Doha Development Round, and on the continent's other trade priorities. Speakers featured Secretary General of COMESA Mr. Erastus Mwencha, IPC Member Ajay Vashee, also president of the Southern African Confederation of Agricultural Unions, and William Jackson, director for African Affairs at USTR.

Established in 1994, COMESA is a trading block of twenty independent African states united to promote regional prosperity through integration. COMESA intends to overcome barriers to trade faced by individual states, and to cooperate to develop natural and human resources. With a population of 374 million importing US$32 billion per year, COMESA is poised to become a large and prosperous market.
