This publication is compiled to provide quality and timely statistical data for the monitoring, evaluation, analysis, research, and promotion of the intra-African trade. It is intended to serve the needs of researchers, policy makers, and the public who work on trade issues. This seventh edition of the Compendium presents foreign trade data in sixteen chapters for all African countries for the period 2004 to 2012. Information on total, share, direction, and evolution of African trade is provided. Focusing on intra-African trade, related statistical data of trade flows are grouped by region, subregions, and Regional Economic Communities (RECs) in Africa, a unique feature that has been found nowhere else. It is hoped that the Compendium will provide the needed support to ongoing efforts aimed at ensuring the integration of the African continent.

Introduction (English)

This is the seventh edition of the Compendium of Intra-African and Related Foreign Trade Statistics. The Compendium was produced by the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) from 1997 to 2005 on biennial basis and was discontinued since then. The African Centre for Statistics (ACS) of ECA has restarted producing the Compendium in 2011 and this is the 2013 edition. It is our hope that this publication will meet the needs of users at the international, regional, subregional and national levels, in particular the planning data for the African economies. The unique feature of this publication is the inclusion of trade data by regional economic communities (RECs) in Africa that are recognized by the African Union Commission (AUC) and other selected groupings of Africa.
