Regional Trade and Market Access for Agricultural Transformation
Africa trades very little with itself compared to other parts of the world. However, trade can lead to significant agriculture-led economic
growth. Trade can also impact food security positively. Some of the areas on which NAIPs could focus include elements of the Plan to
Boost Intra-African Trade such as trade policy, supportive trade facilitation, increasing productive capacities, building better traderelated
infrastructure, increasing access to trade financing, availing trade information and enhancing market integration1.
