How to make African ports more competitive was the issue on the table at the 38th Port Management Association of West and Central Africa (PMAWCA) in Dakar, Senegal.

Managers of Africa’s ports met to deliberate on how globalization should facilitate intra-African trade.

The conference which was held between February 13-17, witnessed Africa and global port experts including speakers from World Trade Organization (WTO) and the African Development Bank (ADB).

We must first of all increase the role of intra-African trade, which is very low, less than 15%, and the dynamics of Africa in world trade, which is less than 3%.
