More integration, less poverty
Arancha González
Africa is the world’s least integrated region in terms of internal trade flows. Trade among African countries has for decades hovered at around 10% of the continent’s total – well below Europe’s 70%, Asia’s 50%, or even Latin America’s 20%. Research conducted by the International Trade Centre (ITC) has shown that African exports often face higher trade barriers in neighbouring countries than they do in other parts of the world.

Photo special: Sowing the seeds of food security
Ann-Kathrin Zotz
Few so-called superfoods have received as much attention as quinoa in recent years. Originating from and grown mostly in South America, it is hailed for its nutritional value and for being easily cultivated in different climatic and agricultural conditions. For these reasons quinoa has been named by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) as the world’s most promising crops in establishing global food security.

Trade's place in the sustainable development goals
Bernard Hoekman
Non-tariff barriers and trade restrictions in developing countries did not figure much in the Millennium Development Goals and this continues to be the case in discussions on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

An export compass for Palestine
Jarle Hetland
Rihab Daqaweieh was one of a group of women and businesswomen from the State of Palestine, Mongolia, Peru, Mongolia, India and Papua New Guinea whose collections were showcased at a fashion show at United Nations headquarters in New York in September 2014. For Daqaweieh – and her business – the event and the process leading up to it proved a turning point: she has more than doubled her exports since.

Regional integration
Jarle Hetland
Africa recently took what many hoped will be a giant leap towards better regional integration among countries across the continent. Leaders from 26 African countries meeting in the Egyptian seaside town of Sharm el Sheik on 10 June signed an agreement to create the continent’s largest free-trade zone, covering 26 countries in an area from Cape Town to Cairo.

Political-economy dynamics matter most to Africa's regional integration
Sanoussi Bilal, Bruce Byiers, Jan Vanheukelom
The world economy is increasingly integrated, a development marked by the dominance of global and regional value chains. This has been accompanied by a proliferation of bilateral, regional, mega-regional and cross-regional economic cooperation agreements and integration initiatives.

The role of big data in Africa's regional integration
Carlos Lopes
The ambitions of a young Ugandan entrepreneur to expand his coffee processing business will soon be within reach. East Africa’s accelerated integration process is opening up possibilities that were unthinkable not long ago. In a couple of years he may be able to tap into West Africa’s 350 million people without having to pay the high tariffs and transport costs that currently make it easier to export to Europe than to other parts of the continent.

Narrowing borders, expanding trade in Latin America
Christian Volpe Martincus
Time matters for trade and its importance is likely to grow because of increasingly segmented production chains across countries and lean retailing, among other reasons.* Especially critical is the effectiveness of public entities that affect the transit times between origins and destinations of goods.

How financial integration can help regional integration in Africa
Amadou Sy
Intra-African trade, especially with Nigeria and South Africa, is growing at a robust pace. It increased more than fivefold in 1995-2012 from US$27.9 billion to US$148.9 billion. However, given that intra-African trade remains the lowest in the world – 12% compared to 25% for the ASEAN region and 17% among the Mercosur countries – there is scope for more growth.

The role of aid for trade and technical trade assistance in regional economic integration
Pascal Lamy
Recent developments in world trade regulation increasingly exhibit a focus on mega-regional trade agreements and other processes of inter- and intra-regional economic integration. These dynamics span advanced, emerging, less developed countries and everything in between. Even where such agreements are ostensibly only being negotiated between developed regions – such as in the proposed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between the European Union and the United States of America – there are inevitably consequences for the developing world.

Boosting regional integration in Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific
Patrick Ignatius Gomes
Regional integration continues to occupy the minds of many leaders in Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) regions, indicating there is significant political will to move this agenda forward. International institutions and agencies are working closely with countries on a range of initiatives to accelerate the process.

Overcoming East Africa's infrastructure challenges
Merian Sebuny
The importance of infrastructure with regard to regional integration remains doubtless in Africa. Past efforts at regional integration have focused on removing barriers to free trade, increasing the free movement of people, labour, goods and capital across national borders.

How can we encourage travel and tourism is ASEAN?
Tony Fernandes
The official beginning of the One ASEAN Community is almost here – we are only a few months away – yet so much still remains to be done to establish true regional integration. In the case of travel in the region, discussions have been held and some actions made, but we are far from achieving our goals of facilitating travel in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region.

Meeting India's market needs with East African goods
Susanna Pak
Indian demand for leather goods outstrips supply. A solution to the shortage lies just across the ocean: partnering with East African businesses, which have materials to meet the need and a desire to upgrade their countries’ leather sector.
