African Development Report 2010
This African Development Report 2010 focuses on trade logistics in Africa, in particular maritime ports, with the objective of exploring ways to unblock bottlenecks to trade, increase competitiveness, and create sustainable economic growth for African countries. Ports are gateways for 80 percent of global merchandise trade and yet these crucial infrastructure hubs often fail to receive the attention they deserve. This report aims at bridging the existing information gap, providing detailed information on port development, institutional and regulatory aspects, and issues of managing the supply chains in general.
