Can Africa Trade with Africa?

 

Promoting intra-African trade has emerged as a top priority for African Leaders. Yet despite the introduction of free trade areas, customs unions, and common markets, the level of trade remains among the lowest in the world -- only about 10% of African trade is within the continent, compared to about 40% in North America and about 60% in Western Europe. The recorded seminar (also available at: www.livestream.com/WorldBankAfrica) focused on how to accelerate trade integration on the continent by reducing behind-the-border trade constraints, expanding access to trade finance, strengthening trade facilitation, and enhancing African voice and capacity for intra-regional and global trade.
