This website is an invitation to join in thinking about issues, problems and opportunities regarding international trade, regionalism and enterprise development in Africa.

During the past years I have worked in Africa for various development institutes and donor agencies as a development economist. Consequently, I wrote many articles, documents, notes, book reviews and more on various development issues; either in my own name or with colleagues and co-authors. A selection of this work is brought together on this website.

The menu contains more on this invitation and about my work. From time to time a News message will appear. Your reaction may trigger further thinking and, who knows, common work. Dialogue and mutual exchange in this sector of international trade, regionalism and enterprise in Africa is the actual purpose of this website. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. You will hear from me when replying.
