“Through FORSEAA we are identifying selected items specially earmarked for export to Africa in the first phase with the hope that we can reduce cost of these same items in Africa and open a new trading avenue for innovative business entrepreneurs in Africa. This approach is very much in line with FORSEAA’s stated Vision & Mission Statements and it has pushed us to work with our network in Africa to help identify possible partners to open this trading avenue between the two blocks – AFRICA and ASEAN,” said St.Ange.

Recently representatives of FORSEAA, led by its Executive Director, Alain St.Ange crisscrossed Indonesia touching key industrial cities to identify products to make the first list for this new FORSEAA led trade cooperation between the AFRICA and the ASEAN Block.
