Economic development in Africa report 2018 : made in Africa, rules of origin for enhanced intra-African trade Paperback / softback
Edited by United Nations Publications
The advent of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) represents a historic opportunity for the continent to boost intra-African trade and accelerate structural transformation.
However, this relies on a critical policy instrument: the effective implementation of preferential trade liberalisation among the AfCFTA members.
Whether in practice African firms will utilize tariff preferences under the AfCFTA depends on a critical factor: rules of origin (RoO) and the net benefits of complying with them.
The Economic Development in Africa Report 2019 argues for the adoption of flexible RoO and a strengthening of institutional capacities to ensure an impartial, transparent, predictable, consistent and neutral implementation of agreed rules of origin
