Transport is a ((((perpetual )))problem in Africa. Potholed roads and missing rail links get in the way of economic growth. Intra-regional trade((( accounts))) for just 13% of total commerce, compared with 53% in emerging Asia. Landlocked countries(((( suffer))))) the most. Transport costs can make up 50-75% of the retail price of goods in Malawi, Rwanda and Uganda. Shipping a car from China to Tanzania on the Indian Ocean coast costs $4,000, but getting it from there to nearby Uganda can cost another $5,000.
Some trade paths are((( improving.)))) Governments are slowly making good on long-standing promises to create free-trade zones. Officials from countries in the East African Community and the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa have removed some border restrictions and lowered tariffs. Roads are being (((built.))] Aswan and Wadi Halfa will soon be ((((connected ))))by a double-lane tarmac highway with its own border terminal, the first dependable road across the Sahara. It will link to a brand new 1,000km-long desert road going south to Khartoum along the green banks of the Nile.
Africa needs much more of this. The continent could easily (((end)))) hunger if only farmers were able to get produce across borders, according to a new World Bank report, “Africa Can Help Feed Africa”. Paul Brenton, the author, says((((( obstacles)))) such as export and import bans, variable import tariffs and quotas, restrictive rules of origin and price controls all prevent consumers in one place from benefiting from staple foods and other resources (such as fertiliser) in nearby areas. Subsistence farmers who sell surplus crops typically receive less than 20% of the market price. The rest is eaten up by transport and transaction costs,((((( limiting ))))))the incentive for farmers to grow more food. One of the most stubbornly persistent problems is roadside checkpoints, which cause delays and attract policemen demanding bribes.
