This year under review was to have witnessed the initiation at the Institute of a research and consultancy services programme to provide direct policy advice to African Governments and institutions on various strategies and reforms to alleviate their specific current economic crisis at the country, sub regional and regional levels. Unfortunately, the setting up and inauguration of the desired capacity has been delayed and the much anticipated research and consultancy services projects are yet to be realized. Nevertheless, despite the limited capacity in the form of only three full-time teaching/research staff, a significant number of research papers were completed and presented at conferences and seminars. Two of these have since been revised and published, one in a journal and the other in a conference proceedings, while a third has been accepted for publication in a forthcoming book of readings on trade and development in sub-Saharan Africa.
