The objective of this assignment is to analyse the content of selected FTAs signed by African countries to provide an overview for the UK’s Department for International Trade of the commitments that they have undertaken with third countries, informing and supporting the UK’s Africa-wide approach to support trade and investment via the UK’s own bilateral trade agreements.

The team will analyse 11 different FTAs throughout Africa, notably the Agadir Agreement; China-Mauritius; Egypt-Turkey; Greater Arab; India-Mauritius; Mauritius-Pakistan; Southern Common Market (MERCOSUR)-Egypt; Southern Common Market (MERCOSUR)-Southern African Customs Union (SACU); Turkey-Mauritius; Turkey-Morocco; and United States-Morocco FTAs respectively.
