TRADE & REGIONAL INTEGRATION
Regional integration is critical to reap the benefits of trade. TULIP advises governments and regional bodies on how to enhance regional integration and address the challenges that come with it. Specifically, TULIP’s work in this area focuses on issues related to negotiations, design and implementation of various free trade agreements. Geographically, TULIP’s work in this area focuses on the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).
