AFRICA: Does Africa trade too little?Oxford Analytica Daily Brief (2008)
AbstractOnce distance to markets and especially GDP are accounted for, the typical African country does not export too little, either with its neighbours or countries elsewhere. In fact, African countries have increased their propensity to export more than expected. Therefore, poor trade performance cannot be offered as evidence that there is something inherently deficient about the African export environment. However, this does not mean higher exports would not be useful.
