New laws could open African maritime trade and transportation, heralding major economic changes of interest for the whole continent. The African Union (AU) is encouraging member states to take advantage of the major opportunities that a maritime or blue economy present for employment, economic growth and wealth creation.

Its 2050 Africa’s Integrated Maritime Strategy proposes new cabotage laws that will boost the oceans as an alternative means of trade and transport for the continent.

The AU’s plans are evaluated in a new ISS Paper Taking back the seas: prospects for Africa's blue economy.

The next View on Africa will be presented by Timothy Walker, a Researcher in the Peace Operations and Peacebuilding division in Pretoria. He will discuss the AU’s proposals and the obstacles Africa faces in increasing maritime trade and building its blue economy.
