Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the level of African participation/engagement in WTO regular bodies, in the period 1995-2010, across variables as follows: number of oral statements in WTO bodies; number of written submissions/proposals; compliance with notification (transparency) requirements, number of discussants in trade policy reviews; and, action on identified priority areas of interests and engagement (including in selected subsidiary bodies of vital interest to African WTO Members). Beyond these, additional specific variables were analyzed, depending on the subject matter and mandate of a committee. It examines the performance of African WTO Members in relation to other Members with regard to these specific variables. Finally, as in the analysis of African engagement in the Doha negotiations, the structural forms of the engagement of African WTO Members in the regular work of the Organization are examined. The analysis identified behavioural patterns of African WTO Members in regular committee work in the Organization.

Keywords: African participation; African WTO Members; trade policy reviews; TRIPS; WTO regular bodies
