Data analysis and statistics

Recognising the paucity and often incomplete and inaccurate trade data available for African countries, tralac periodically reports on the recent trading relationships between the African continent and several existing and rising trading partners by preparing trade data analysis briefs and sector and country/region-specific trade profiles. tralac researchers also undertake statistical modelling exercises to examine the potential trade effects and impact of various (regional) trade agreements on participating countries.
