Twenty-first-century Africa is in a process of economic transformation but challenges remain in areas such as structural reform, governance, commodity pricing and geopolitics. This book looks into key questions facing the continent, such as how can Africa achieve deeper integration into the rules-based multilateral trading system and the global economy? The publication is based on contributions to the Fourth China Round Table on WTO Accessions and the Multilateral Trading System, which took place just before the WTO's Tenth Ministerial Conference in Nairobi in December 2015. The book provides a range of perspectives on the future of the multilateral trading system and Africa's participation in global trade. Co-published with Cambridge University Press.
