There are growing economic links between the economies of Central and Eastern Europe and sub-Saharan Africa in terms of both trade and investment. However, while trade has picked up significantly from pre-EU accession levels, investment has not increased to the same extent.

This paper is part of a series of publications produced by the Chatham House Africa Programme on the topic of re-engagement between Central and Eastern Europe and sub-Saharan Africa, with particular reference to the utility of transition experiences to capacity-building, inclusive growth and good governance. The current paper draws on roundtable discussions and semi-structured interviews, with businesses, chambers of commerce (CCs), business associations, senior policymakers in Central and Eastern European and sub-Saharan African governments, and senior EU civil servants, as well as a number of ambassadors and embassy staff.
