The index, which is a joint project of the African Development Bank, the African Union Commission and the Economic Commission for Africa, covers the following dimensions: free movement of persons, trade integration, productive integration, regional interconnections and infrastructure, and macroeconomic policy convergence.

Detailed analysis of the country's performance in the various dimensions of the Index, including a look at specific indicators, will be added in due course.

Notes: Benin’s high performance in CEN-SAD on productive integration can be explained by its proximity to Nigeria, since Benin re-exports manufactured products to its neighbour.
