Abstract

There is no doubt that economic growth rates in sub-Sahara Africa lagged far behind those of other regions and that Africa is the region least integrated into the global economy. In this article, the case has been made to show that African countries can and must integrate themselves into world markets if they wish to succeed.  For Africa, an important intermediate step toward integration into the world economy is promoting regional integration at home. This is one urgent step towards making globalisation work in Africa.
