    There is a perception of high risks for financing trade in Africa. However, we find ways to mitigate these for bankable projects, also with the implication of Export Credit Agencies which are increasingly becoming more flexible in their support to reduce the trade finance gap.

    Africas interregional trade reached an estimated level of US$174 billion in 2014, the equivalent of 19.2% of total flows. However, whats not taken into account is the prevalence of informal trade across Africa and, even though, its hard to quantify it, its estimated at around US$200 billion.
