African Regional and Economic Integration - AfCoP e-discussion

Regional and economic integration in Africa has been facing many constraints.  The continent houses 14 Regional Economic Communities (RECs) at different stages of integration. Most of these RECs face challenges of overlapping memberships, inadequate funding, and restricted movement of people, goods, services, and capital. Difficulties in doing business among member states have been some of the greatest challenges facing the continent.  The African Community of Practice on Managing for Development Results is inviting members to join an online discussion about African Regional and Economic integration: Challenges of doing business, travelling, visa requirements, and lessons from countries with successful regional integration to help identify ideas and strategies for strengthening the African economic community.
