Trading Up: COMESA Case Study

COMESA has developed a sound institutional framework that supports agricultural development as well as agricultural trade. The REC has adopted a pragmatic approach to addressing key barriers to agricultural trade. Focusing on unlocking finance for trade through robust banking and insurance institutions is a unique and innovative approach. Similarly, developing sector-focused interventions have significantly improved the productivity of the leather and staples sectors, especially of cassava. Finally, complementing these with a wide range of solutions to ease transit across and between countries has further strengthened intraregional trade.
