Focus Report

En Français

Economic zones in Africa have had a significant impact on trade volumes across the continent, as well as on job creation and foreign direct investment inflows. The African Continental Free Trade Area agreement presents an opportunity to extend the activities of these zones and promote intra-African trade, developing regional value chains and industrial complementarity in the process.

This Focus Report was produced in collaboration with the Africa Economic Zones Organisation (AEZO), and contains a foreword from AEZO’s secretary-general and an interview with Tanger Med Zones’ managing director. It also features case studies and viewpoints from Polaris Parks, Tanger Med Zones, Lagos Free Zones, Ghana Free Zones Authority, Misurata Free Zone and Sebore International Farms.
