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.
