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 publication offers expert insights into how Africa can achieve deeper integration into the multilateral trading system and global economy.

The book provides a range of perspectives on the future of the multilateral trading system and Africa’s participation in global trade, and underlines the supportive roles that can be played by multilateral and regional institutions.

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.

Co-published with Cambridge University Press in 2016.
