OUVRAGE : P. Low, C. Osakwe, M. Oshikawa (eds.), African Perspectives on Trade and the WTO: Domestic Reforms, Structural Transformation and Global Economic Integration

Patrick LOW, Chiedu OSAKWE, Maika OSHIKAWA

Twenty-first century Africa is in a process of economic transformation, but challenges remain in areas such as structural reform, governance, commodity pricing and geopolitics. This book looks into key questions facing the continent, such as how Africa can achieve deeper integration into the rules-based multilateral trading system and the global economy. It provides a range of perspectives on the future of the multilateral trading system and Africa's participation in global trade and underlines the supportive roles that can be played by multilateral and regional institutions during such a rapid and uncertain transition. This volume is based on contributions to the Fourth China Round Table on WTO Accessions and the Multilateral Trading System, which took place just before the World Trade Organization's Tenth Ministerial Conference in Nairobi in December 2015.
