 Trade preferences for Africa and the impact of Rules of Origin

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter presents information on the utilization by the sub-Saharan African developing countries of EU, US, and Japanese trade preferences, and explores the reasons why rules of origin may constrain the take-up of the preferences. Unlike previous studies, which have concentrated on the overall level of utilization of available preferences, the variations in the rate of utilization of preferences across beneficiaries and across the three developed-country preferential schemes are highlighted.

Keywords: rules of origin; trade preferences; utilization of preferences; sub-Saharan Africa; developing countries
