Let Africa Trade With Africa

307 ratings | 51642 views
In Africa, non-tariff trade barriers raise transaction costs and limit the movement of goods, services, people and capital across borders. To further development, African governments must embrace regional integration, break down these barriers and help Africans trade with each other.

The lack of infrastructure is not the biggest barrier to intra Africa trade. The corrupt officials at the borders are. And the corrupt government's refusal to tackle this problem. It takes transport truckers more than 5 days to cross the Congo border.

Where are the infrastructures to support inter-Africa trade? How can Nigeria integrate its trade with the 15 francophone African that uses the CFA and France central bank?

Traceability is also a serious challenge to know the true origin of the goods coming through close borders. Yes EU countries trade up to 65% within the block however it is easy to trace the origin of the goods and there is also a quota to protect local industries for certain products particularly food dumped on their markets .

In order to increase the development of the country's economy, it should be started inside, in trading, this is the best thing to do to maximize the resources, and this is where the country will find out what is lacking in order for them to provide, and through this, they will need an enough manpower to support the activities. that's what i think, idk

HAHAH nobody in Africa wants World Bank money, everyone search for real traders, from real private companies.

What kind of non-tariff barriers are we talking?

The system has been designed so we can all be slaves to oil companies. Oil companies have bought out patents to technologies that would make it very cheap to transport goods across our borders. On the other hand you have greedy black leaders and their friends who think only of their pockets. Then they waste the money they stole cuz they lack money management skills. Sad!

African leaders cannot do this because they consider their countries as private propriety!!!

I was not in love with free trade idea, but this, intra-African trade in food crops, removing trade barriers, reducing transaction costs... seems like a GREAT IDEA :)

let there be free access to the passage of business via border to border
umar ismail (5 years ago)
one instantaneous means business could trive/boom in africa is to let border countries trade with each other without extensive trade disturbance from d borders.

The first move would be to start FTA's in regions and not just open boarders for the entire continent. Southern African can open its boarders among countries Zimbabwe, South Africa, Botswana, Zambia..... this means free trade, workforce and business being done freely with less regulations and fees.

champ4sho1 why leave out SD, Mozambique, Lesotho, Namibia or Angola as well

Your the ones in power and you know the problem and how to fix it, then fix it.

This sounds so good but will it happen. I am totally for this I hope our African leaders will see and be able to react as quickly as possible. This better not be a political way to get people back.

Very interesting report and I hope that this situation will be improved shortly. It will help African countries develop their economies significantly, but maybe more importantly; provide jobs and make more food available at lower prices.
