The land borders of the member states of the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU) may soon reopen. The ministers of health, safety, and transport of different countries met on Tuesday in virtual to discuss the issue.

The virtual interministerial session, chaired by Togo, was extended to experts and members of the Union Commission.

The work should launch the reflection on the reopening of the land borders of space.

This, said officials, “on the basis of the analysis of the report of experts from member countries of the Union”.

According to the information gathered by AfrikPage, the conclusions will not be presented to the Heads of State until their next Assembly.

However, the experts are already recommending “the strengthening of cross-border collaboration and security at points of entry”.

As a reminder, the air borders, also closed following the appearance of the first cases of coronavirus in the sub-region, but they have gradually been reopened in several countries.

In any case, for the moment our editorial staff has not yet had any news concerning the decision of the Ghanaian authorities, although this country located between the Ivory Coast and Togo, is not a member of the UEMOA.
