Central African Republic
Diagnostic Trade Integration Study (DTIS) 2007
DTIS update N/A
WTO accession 1995

The Central African Republic's Diagnostic Trade Integration Study (DTIS) was validated in 2007. Trade priorities were identified in agriculture, forestry, mining, transport infrastructure, the private sector, the business environment, and regional integration, and these sectors were included in the country's 2007 Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP).

In partnership with EIF, the Central African Republic is addressing institutional capacity constraints, including setting up a National Implementation Unit (NIU) and fostering private sector export capacity with a focus on sesame.

Consolidating encouraging results from the initial partnership, CAR and EIF will work together to ensure the effective implementation of activities aimed at institutional capacity building and trade integration as well as the mobilization of additional resources.

The programme aims to contribute to the implementation of the Peacebuilding and Recovery Plan, and to enhance the presence of the Central African Republic in international trade by empowering key actors.
