"South Africa's Way Ahead: Trade Policy Options"
by Sandrey, Ron, Hans Grinsted Jensen, Nick Vink and Taku Fundira


Abstract
This book presents the output of a tralac project focusing on the trade agenda of South Africa and the Southern African Customs Union (SACU) of which South Africa is a member. The proliferation of Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) is very much part of SACU and specifically South Africa’s trade agenda, since FTAs are negotiated collectively by SACU member states. The aim of the analysis in this book is twofold. First, the implications of different FTAs that are either being negotiated or being considered, are assessed in the context of the current Doha Round of multilateral trade negotiations. Second, the book presents a sober assessment of trade modelling exercises, noting the value as well as the limitations of these exercises in the making of trade policy choices and negotiating trade agreements.
