Description of the Sub-Subject (Mano River Union).

In 1973 was created the Mano River Union (MRU), an African regional integration institution, with three objectives:

  1. Foster international trade between members
  2. Development of common projects (industry, transport, financial, energy, resources, and food security)
  3. Promote peace and security in the Mano River Union region

The Mano River Union consists of Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea, and Ivory Coast.

After some years of inactivity, the Head of States of Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea, and Ivory Coast agree to re-launch the project in 2008.

Dr Saran Daraba Kaba is the current Secretary-General.

The Mano River Union works actively in four areas:

  1. Organisational renewal

The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the Mano River Union has signed a protocol on free movement and trade.
