Abstract

This report represents the output from the first stage of a study on African agricultural export potential which addressed the following issues: (a) a review of export options; (b) identification of emerging profitable opportunities for the private sector; (c) proposals for supporting export diversification, including options for donor funding. The report provides an overview of principal export market components, potential trends and hence, key issues to be addressed. It is based on a literature and statistical review, and on visits to the major institutions concerned with international trade issues. Visits were also made to organizations directly involved in trade, particularly those with experience in handling produce of African origin, and to NGOs with a proven track record in trade promotion.
