Speaking on the sidelines of COMESA national sensitisation workshop held in the capital, chief economist Competition and Tariff Commission, Cecilia Mashava said the attendant benefits of regional integration can only be realised by supporting a strong competition culture, not only in Zimbabwe but also the member states.

Also speaking on the sidelines of the workshop, head mergers and acquisitions COMESA Competition Commission, Mr Willard Mwemba talked about the need for Zimbabwean government in fulfilling its obligations under the COMESA treaty.

It was also noted during the workshop the importance of collective regional approach to issues of development and became prudent that the business community in Zimbabwe acknowledges the existence of binding treaties and laws that Zimbabwe is a signatory to.
