Topic: “A continent with seamless borders” - Introduction of African Passport (to improve economic growth)

In the past centuries, the continent of Africa has experienced economic growth and increased solidarity between countries.

In order to achieve the aspirations of the Agenda, an African passport should be introduced.[1]
