Agricultural exports: mixed results well below their potential

Ribier V.. 2016. In : Pesche Denis (ed.), Losch Bruno (ed.), Imbernon Jacques (ed.). A new emerging rural world - an overview of rural change in Africa. Montpellier : Cirad, Nepad, p. 34-35.

Exports of agricultural products now account for only 1.3% of ail African exports, a long way behind those of oil, gas and ore. They are nevertheless critical for a number of countries, where they exceed 50% of total export value. Heavy dependence on two or three products is the rule in many countries and a source of weakness. The low level of processing for these products remains a challenge at a time when trade partners are diversifying.
