The History and Description of Africa, Volume 2: And of the Notable Things Therein Contained

The guides of the Hakluyt Society (founded in 1846) made on hand edited (and occasionally translated) early debts of exploration. the 1st sequence, which ran from 1847 to 1899, includes a hundred books containing released or formerly unpublished works through authors from Christopher Columbus to Sir Francis Drake, and overlaying voyages to the recent international, to China and Japan, to Russia and to Africa and India.

Frommer's Kenya and Tanzania (Frommer's Complete Guides)

Frommer's Kenya & Tanzania would be the in basic terms significant guidebook to hide either one of those international locations intimately. absolutely 50% of overseas travelers arriving in Tanzania come from Kenya, so the ease of getting one publication for either nations is an important promoting aspect. Frommer's Kenya & Tanzania may be written via a trio of writers, of whom at present stay in Africa and a 3rd who lived in Tanzania for years.

Sample text

This situation is markedly different from that of the Asian NICs. 0 percentage points higher than that facing other exporters of the same items. 2 points higher than that facing other exporters (many of which receive preferences). Due to the important role that textiles and clothing played in the early stages of some countries industrialization, note should be made of the US failure to provide African countries (even those classified as least developed) any preferences for these goods. As a result, African exports face post Uruguay Round tariffs on textile and clothing products that may exceed 25 percent.

Another key point to note is that current OECD tariffs facing Africa are far less of an obstacle than were those the Asian NICs faced (and overcame) when they began their successful export oriented industrialization drive (see Box 1). This is due both to the effect of preferences, and the success of the Kennedy, Tokyo and Uruguay Round in reducing tariff barriers. Table 4 extends the foregoing analysis by examining the average preference margins African countries have over other exporters to the European Union, United States and Japan.

Source: World Bank-UNCTAD SMART Database. These statistics relate to 1988 trade patterns. Page 16 The data for other African exporters reveal a situation similar. Preferences result in at least 97 percent of each African country's exports entering the EU free of duty, and in two cases (Congo and Guinea) no duties were paid on any line item. Table 3 also shows how markedly the profile of protection against Africa differs from that of countries like the Republic of Korea and Taiwan (China). Only four percent of the latter's exports (less than 200 tariff line items out of a total of over 4,000) have duty free accessnot due to preferences, but because of a zero MFN rate.
