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.



Supply-and-demand constraints to intra-Africa trade

This chapter deals with Africa’s potential for intraregional trade and the major constraints to that potential. It also addresses the role of regional integration in the process. The latter is one of the most important vehicles to enhance intra-Africatrade which, in turn, is a key to the betterment of the continent’s populations.
