The main purpose of this paper is to examine this emphatic issue of coordination and harmonization of the activities of the RECs from the angle of trade liberalization, specifically in respect of the timetables for achieving it. The paper is inscribed as part of the programmed outputs of the Regional Cooperation and Integration Division of the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA/RCID) for the biennial period 2000-2001. It is meant to provide an input to the next annual statutory meeting of the ECA's Committee on Regional Integration.
