Introduction and Background

Economists commonly argue that poor Countries suffer from a development vicious circle: .the predominance of subsistence Production inhibits accumulation of savings; leading to low savings, low consumption which further inhibits investment; and because investment is low, economic growth is stagnant. unfortunately Many African economies fit this description.

Accordingly the target market exacerbate the problem by market access barriers, regulations, prohibitive consumer preferences in developed country markets, which further inhibit the incentive to invest, particularly for export.

Then the market side creates a scenario

Where, African exports are commodity-dependent, where the buyer determines the rules of the game, sometimes without notice! Which has until recently caused a long-term decline in Africas terms of trade. And supply-side deficiencies, principally poor physical and fiscal infrastructure and low levels of human resource where governance problems and lack of capacity are abound.

Introduction to the topic

Africas advantages and challenges in the global market are legion, and have been massively researched and documented. There are mountains of data to refer to, most of which are available in the internet, various research papers, newsletter and journals Here I will just attempt to summarize them against the backdrop of Africas broader advantages and challenges in the global trade.

How can these challenges be turned into tools of advantages and opportunities to increase its presence and market share in the global market? and How can African producers turn their advantages into tangible assets in the global agro-products market?

The Africas Comparative Advantages and Challenges

As we all understand today, a feature of global economic systems is the rise of global value chains, embodying networks of actors, tied together by relationships, linking producers, processors, marketers, regulators and distributors, most times than not across boarders and oceans along the chain.

My request

I have put ideas before your expert scrutiny, I hope you will have the time, energy and perseverance to work on them and hope that we will enrich our selves in challenges and opportunities for agri-business and agro-industry development for the African populations. Africa is no doubt a major component of the world agro-economy and offers considerable opportunities as part of the solution to the global food crisis, by harnessing resources available.
