Abstract

OECD trade barriers did not play a significant role in Sub-Saharan Africa's declining position in world trade over the last three decades. The detrimental effects of the African countries' own policies, such as those that influence international transport costs, were considerably more important. HOwever, OECD countries have policy options available that could further improve the external environment for, and competitive position of, African exports.
