New study on the coherence of trade policies in West Africa

The French Association de Solidarité et de Coopération Internationale (GRET) conducted a study funded by the Agence Française de Développement on the coherence of trade policies in West Africa. The study is in French but a synthesis presenting the main recommendations has been translated in English. According to GRET, the question of coherence is important at different levels: between national and regional trade policies, between trade policies and sectoral (agricultural, industrial) policies both at the national and regional levels, between regional organisations (WAEMU, ECOWAS), between trade policies and the commitments made by West African States at the WTO. What are the problems related to the coherence of trade policies? What have been the solutions brought so far? What recommendations could be done to strengthen the coherence of trade policies? Those are the main questions the study aims to deal with. The analysis is based on many interviews conducted with the relevant stakeholders (institutional, economic operators) in three countries (Burkina Faso/ WAEMU, Nigeria/ ECOWAS, Senegal) and at the WTO Secretariat.
