Single Passport -Turning Point for a More Prosperous Africa

The African Development Bank (AfDB) remains focused on delivering its plans to transform Africa and work towards building a continent with seamless borders. "We have reasons to be optimistic," writes AfDB's Moono Mupotola, "with the strong signal sent by Heads of State" who showed their commitment to Africa's regional integration at the 27th African Union Summit in Kigali, Rwanda, in July with their proposal to implement a single passport for Africa and ensure free movement of people as part of the African Union's 2063 Agenda.

"Labour mobility is highly beneficial, and can help fill Africa’s labour needs in the education, health and industrial sectors." - Moono Mupotola is the Director of the NEPAD, Regional Integration and Trade Department at the African Development Bank.
