Malawi, Zambia, Tanzania, Mozambique and Zimbabwe plan to form a regional bloc for tobacco producing nations in the SADC region.

Local trade and agriculture authorities have been meeting these other tobacco producing countries to enhance their regional block agenda.

This is in the hope of ensuring that they are able to speak with one strong voice, to avoiding being ripped off by international buyers.

Issues of pricing have been a shared problem in most of the tobacco producing countries, as international buyers tend to offer low prices for good leaf.

Director of Trade in the Ministry Christina Chatima discloses that the anti-smoking lobby is still their main challenge and they believe the coming together of the countries will help in voicing out concerns on the matter.

She adds that discussions on the union are progressing well and that they were to meet at the end of May.

Meanwhile Trade Spokesperson Wiskesi Mkombezi confirms the meeting has taken place.

Mkombezi however points out that the delegation that attended the talks is yet to furnish them with details of what has transpired at the meeting.

    Here's a list of free public proxies. The list is a little smaller than usual. You should still be able to make good use out of it.
