The book analyses how to make trade and
investment policies in Africa relevant for structural
change. First the framework of coherent and comprehensive
trade policies is presented; the role of international
organisations in promoting agricultural export trade is
analysed; and the divergence between planned and actual
export diversification strategies is discussed. Secondly it
is investigated how investment policies could be redirected
towards major economic sectors, how oil-exporting countries
can strengthen their industrial policy towards export
diversification and how global value chains can be
strengthened by appropriate policies.
