  • The West African region is the EU's most important trade partner in the African, Caribbean and Pacific region. The West African countries account for 40% of all trade between the EU and the African, Caribbean and Pacific region.
  • Of the West African countries the Ivory Coast, Ghana and Nigeria account for 80% of the exports to the EU.
  • Despite advanced regional integration processes in the region, barriers to intra-regional trade remain a challenge for the economies in West Africa. Regional trade lags behind compared to trade with developed and emerging countries outside West Africa.
  • All the countries in the West Africa region except for Liberia are members of the WTO. Liberia is currently going through the accession process with full support of the EU.
  • EU exports to the Ivory Coast and Ghana are dominated by industrial goods, machinery, vehicles and transport equipment and chemicals.
  • EU imports from the West African countries are dominated by a limited number of basic commodities. Nigeria is a major oil exporter, recently followed by Ghana. Ghana and Ivory Coast are the world's two largest cocoa exporters. They also export bananas and, together with Cape Verde and Senegal, processed fisheries products. Other exports from the region include a range of agricultural commodities (mango, pineapple, groundnuts, cotton etc.) and to a far lesser extent metals (copper, gold) and diamonds.
