Introduction

Introduction

  • The process of socio-economic, political and cultural integration has always been a core concern of African leaders;

  • Since 1960 several initiatives and legal frameworks adopted at the highest level have succeeded to accelerate the integration process and to ensure its sons and daughters good quality, economic and social welfare;

  • For it to fully succeed and ensure that they achieve their objectives, it requires not only quality statistical information, but also harmonized data across time and space in all areas of African integration.
