Africa's Progress in Regional and Global Economic Integration - Towards New Trade and Investment Policies

Edited by: Karl Wohlmuth, Tobias Knedlik, Reuben A. Alabi, Achim Gutowski, Oyebanke Oyelaran-Oyeyinka

The book analyzes how to make trade and investment policies in Africa relevant for structural change. First, the framework of coherent and comprehensive trade policies is presented; the role of international organizations in promoting agricultural export trade is analyzed; and the divergence between planned and actual export diversification strategies is discussed. Secondly, it is investigated how investment policies could be redirected towards major economic sectors, how oil-exporting countries can strengthen their industrial policy towards export diversification, and how global value chains can be strengthened by appropriate policies.
