This article aims to highlight the stakes and consequences for Africa of the debate on the issue of creating market access for agricultural and non-agricultural products. On the basis of the literature, we set ourselves the objective of informing African negotiators of the limited impact the various formulas have on their economies. In this respect, we shall try to give some explanations regarding the limited impact of the proposed formulas. At the same time we intend to highlight the general principles and rules that must govern the definition of market access formulas capable of taking into account the interests of African countries and ensuring that international trade also plays a positive role in their development process and makes a significant contribution towards the diversification of their economic structures.
