Les APE et l’intégration régionale africaine

Undefined

Loin de prétendre trancher le débat entre partisans et adversaires des accords de partenariat économique (APE), ce numéro revient sur les enjeux des APE quant à l’agenda d’intégration régionale au regard de la division qui prévaut en Afrique dans le cadre de ces négociations. En effet, alors que l’UE agit en un bloc, l’Afrique est divisée en cinq blocs régionaux, une situation qui risque d’annihiler les efforts consentis par les dirigeants africains ces dernières années pour renforcer l’intégration régionale. Une partie de l’analyse porte sur la façon dont les pays africains pourraient utiliser la période de transition dont ils bénéficient dans le cadre de la mise en œuvre des APE, pour accélérer l’intégration afin de faire face à certains défis liés à la mise en œuvre de ces accords.

Implemented jointly by ICTSD and World Economic Forum, the E15Initiative (E15) convenes world-class experts and institutions to generate strategic analysis and recommendations for government, business, and civil society geared towards strengthening the global trade and investment system for sustainable development.

The third Rountable Dialogue with WTO Ambassadors occurred on 18 June, 2014 in Geneva, Switzerland. The focus of the discussion was on food security and agricultural trade in the post-Bali agenda.

If new ideas are going to be advanced at the multilateral level, the representatives to the WTO in Geneva will be critical. As such, engaging this group is important in disseminating ideas, testing their viability, and generating ownership. ICTSD, in a collaboration with Geneva’s top-ranked Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, and led by Prof. Richard Baldwin, Director of the Centre for Trade and Economic Integration and President of the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR), is hosting a series of dialogues and substantive roundtables in Geneva to engage Permanent Representatives and delegates to the WTO.

This informal policy dialogue sought to facilitate an exchange of views between different relevant actors on the relationship between agricultural trade policy and the achievement of sustainable development goals, taking into consideration the framework of rules and shared objectives that governments have agreed at the international level. As such, it sought to contribute to a broader process that ICTSD has initiated, focusing especially on the role of farm trade policy in countries that play a structural role within the global agricultural trading system, and which to date has included analysis and dialogue with policy-makers and different national constituencies in the US, EU, China, India, Russia and Brazil. Participants at the meeting exchanged analysis and opinions on how different policy options could affect food security, poverty reduction and environmental sustainability, taking into consideration current and projected trends in global markets, new developments in the regulatory frameworks governing markets for food and agriculture, and the anticipated impact of climate change.
