      For example, some industry sectors benefit from being part of a cluster of similar or related businesses with access to wide and deep pools of specialist skills, other sectors rely more heavily on connectivity to international gateways for access to overseas markets, whilst other sectors function perfectly well wherever they are located. Some parts of Africa had close trade relationships with Arab kingdoms, and by the time of the Ottoman EmpireAfricans had begun converting to Islam in large numbers. Therefore, economic and social development, in any measure, is needed in this sub-region more than anywhere else in the world. Yet, it has not been successful at increasing incoming foreign direct investment or securing significantly higher levels of domestic bank credit which, in both cases, may hinder future growth prospects. Regional macroeconomic policy is examined in five separate studies.

      The Chinese government needs to provide additional infrastructure investments to allow ports to handle freight more effectively; in addition, the Chinese government also needs to develop road and rail along the Yangtze River in order to allow for an effective use of multimodal transportation of freight. Oil-rich countries such as AlgeriaLibya and Gabonand mineral-rich Botswana emerged among the top economies since the 21st century, while Zimbabwe and the Democratic Republic of Congopotentially among the world's richest nations, have sunk into the list of the world's poorest nations due to pervasive political corruption, warfare and braindrain of workforce. These impacts interact over time and can lead to improvements in economic output and the geographical distribution of economic activity. This map focuses on one of the indicators population potential within the Niger-Nigeria border area. Collectively, these analyses enrich the readers understanding of the vital role border areas have in contributing to the regional integration process.

      Africa's share of global manufacturing is drastically disproportionate to its population. The main trade of these states was goldwhich was plentiful in Guinea. Although these subsidies and tariffs have been gradually reduced, they remain high. It has been investigated in each country from a methodology based on co-integration.

Origins of agriculture[ edit ] The first agriculture in Africa began in the heart of the Sahara Desertwhich in BC was far more moist and densely populated than today.

The World Bank reports the economy of Sub-Saharan African countries grew at rates that match or surpass global rates. These benefits may not be completely additional at a national level and may arise as a result of displacement of economic activity from elsewhere. Abundant farm subsidies and high import tariffs in the developed world, most notably those set by Japan, the European Union's Common Agricultural Policyand the United States Department of Agricultureare thought to be the cause.
