Tariffs on intra-Africa trade

An overview of tariff measures adopted by African countries on intra-Africa trade

Many African countries trade under preferential trading arrangements of their regional economic communities (RECs) which offer tariff presences on intra-REC trade for those countries which are members of their RECs’s Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) or Customs Unions.

Intra-Africa imports from outside the territories of those FTAs or Customs Unions are levied the general applied tariff (those countries not members of the World Trade Organisation) or the Most Favoured Nation applied tariff of the destination market.
