The world of international trade is changing faster and stronger than rarely before in modern history. After failed multilateral attempts by the WTO, nations are now banding together in great mega-regional free trading blocks.

Our new GED Study Series “How do Mega-Regional Trade Agreements Affect Emerging Markets” sheds light on the effects such pervasive changes in the global trading game will have on various regions around the world.

Part three of this three-part series analyzes the effects of TTIP, TPP and FTAAP on 30 African countries and regions and takes a critical look at Africa's growing dependency on China.
