Word From The Director
Dr Fallou Samb
THE AFRICAN INSTITUTE OF TRADE POLICIES (IAPC)
The deep integration of African countries into the Multilateral Trade System marked by the creation of the World Trade Organization (WTO), rests above all on knowledge and mastery of the rules that govern world trade in goods and services, but also the dispute settlement procedure established at this level.
Today, African States, like the others, are subject to an obligation of arbitration and the harmonization or harmonization of national, community (UEMOA, ECOWAS, CEMAC, SADEC), interregional ( EPA) and multilateral (WTO). Also, they are faced with two contradictory requirements that must imperatively be reconciled by preventing one from annihilating the other: local or national requirements, such as the request for a subsidy from producers and the prohibition of certain subsidies by the WTO in the face of development needs and constraints which do not always fit in with multilateral trade rules.
The proliferation of commercial spaces and the existence of two categories
of players, namely developed countries and developing countries, have
been accompanied by a plurality and complexity of applicable trade rules
applicable to international trade, the impact of which is real on the conduct of
the development process in our countries.
