The publication seeks to address the pressing issues that are negatively affecting trade amongst African countries. It undertakes a comprehensive empirical analysis of intra-African trade to determine why it has remained consistently low over the past decades. The report proposes concrete recommendations, to be implemented by member States, Regional Economic Communities (RECs), members of the private-sector, and other stakeholders in Africa’s development. It also analyses the various policy issues and other factors that have affected intra-African trade.




This report was prepared by a team of experts from the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), African Union Commission (AUC) and African Development Bank (AfDB) under the overall guidance and leadership of the United Nations Under-Secretary-General and the Executive Secretary of UNECA, Mr. Abdoulie Janneh, President of the AUC, Dr. Jean Ping and the President of the AfDB, Dr. Donald Kaberuka.
