Two major policy announcements, signed by the six African heads of state of the Communauté Economique et Monetaire de l’Afrique Centrale (CEMAC) summit in Libreville, Gabon.

The two major new policy commitments are :

- The abolition of visa requirements for all citizens of CEMAC for travel within the region, to be implemented by January 1, 2014.

- The creation of a policy framework for the protection of business in the CEMAC region, including the adoption of harmonised drug registration policies to combat counterfeit drugs, as well as facilitate access for pharmaceutical companies to the regional market.
