About the product

The paper analyses the export structure of the African, Caribbean, and Pacific (ACP) countries by region covering both products and services trade, with a focus on the structure of the exporting sector by company sizes; assesses product and market diversification, and the development of transformation activities; discusses trade integration in regional vs. global markets; concludes that lower barriers to trade could facilitate trade by SMEs and the development of transformation activities. The discussion of trade performance is complemented by an analysis of trade policy frameworks within the ACP group to help identify areas where increased cooperation among ACP Member States has the potential to contribute to greater trade performance and stronger sustainable growth.
