International Trade in East Africa: The Case of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development
AbstractThe process of close integration in East Africa has resulted in changes in trade structures and production process across borders. The aim of this article is to present the transformations taking place in the trade exchange of one of the African community initiatives: the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD). The paper offers an analysis of the changes in foreign trade structures of the IGAD states, e.g. trade concentration or the similarity of IGAD’s trade to the selected economic integration communities in south of the Sahara in Africa. In order to ensure uniformity of this analysis, the study was based on data compiled by international organisations, mainly the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development and the World Trade Organization.
