Les produits « bas de gamme » dans le commerce Sud-Sud. Le cas des échanges entre l'Afrique subsaharienneet l'Asie en développement


  • Diadié Diaw


This work proposes to analyze the determinants of trade in bottom-line products, in comparison with global trade. It also tries to assess the risks of competition between developing countries, particularly between Sub-Saharan Africa and developing Asia. It tries to assess the available opportunities for Least Developed Countries in the context of the changing exports structure of countries like China. We attempt to provide answers about the oft-mentioned risks of competition between Africa and Asian developing countries.
