Afreximbank launches Policy Research Working Paper Series – Global Patriot Newspapers

CAIRO, Egypt, April 4, 2024

African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) has introduced the Afreximbank Policy Research Working Paper Series (APRWPS) and is inviting authors to submit manuscripts for publication.

The APRWPS will provide a platform for Afreximbank staff, academics, scholars, institutions and practitioners to share preliminary research findings on topics concerning African trade, trade finance and development. It will serve as a knowledge repository for stakeholders to exchange ideas and address knowledge gaps, thereby enhancing Afreximbank’s visibility in research and knowledge generation and contribute to policy advisory, formulation, and implementation among member states.

This new series is designed to complement Afreximbank’s existing research publications, including the Journal of African Trade, the Contemporary Issues in African Trade and Trade Finance, the African Trade Report and the Distinguished Lecture Series. The launch of this policy research series aligns with Afreximbank’s goal of becoming a leading authority in African trade and trade finance.

The statement by Vincent Musumba, Manager, Communications and Events (Media Relations), announcing the development, quoted Afreximbank’s Group Chief Economist & Managing Director, Research & International Cooperation, Dr. Yemi Kale, as saying:

“The APRWPS aims to promote research and knowledge dissemination in development economics, trade, and trade finance relevant to Africa’s development. It is an important vehicle to enhance the global image of Africa by contributing to global research and knowledge production.”

Authors interested in contributing to the APRWPS can submit manuscripts to Guidelines for submitting papers and the scope of research topics are available on the Afreximbank website here: The inaugural issue, APRWS/2024, released in March 2024, features six papers authored by 14 contributors and can be accessed here:
