Trade between Africa and non-African developing countries grew from USD 283 billion in 2008, to USD 595 billion a year by 2012   and developing countries’ exports to Africa have increased in the last 15 years from 26 to 43 per cent, while their imports from Africa have grown from 33 to 50 per cent.   This year’s African Economic Outlook considers Africa’s surge in relations with “emerging partners”, who now sit at the top tables of economic decision making alongside “traditional partners” from Europe and North America.
