dc.description.abstractA special session of the Conference of the African Ministers of Trade met in December 1900 and adopted what is known as "Strategies for the recovery and growth of Africa's Trade in the 1990's and beyond"/ These were an attempt to translate trade related provisions of the* Lagos Plan of Action into operational measures and to define follow-up and monitoring mechanisms for their effective implementation. The current sluggish and declining trends of Africa's trade and the absence of structural; changes in Africa's production and trade sector cast some doubt on member countries' understanding of the strategies and resolve to implement them. It was found out that more emphasis should be put on the policy prescriptions for die economic transformation required for the expansion of development-oriented trade to take place. The present report takes the debate on diversification a step further by highlighting the need to link commodity diversification and market diversification as these are the two pillars of development-oriented trade. The report dwells, to some extent, on capacities African countries should put in place to support the production and market diversification process. The overall report is an attempt to deepen and further prescriptions in the 1990 strategies in the light of challenges before Africa following the adoption of the Uruguay Round Agreements and their entry into force, the entry into force of the Abuja Treaty, the emerging trading blocs and the overdependence of the continent on commodity exports.en
