Focus on South South cooperation

However, despite the enormous potential of South-South cooperation, it must be acknowledged that no enduring and effective changes can take place without the political will and commitment from concerned governments. The ambivalent relations between some of the most powerful emerging nations in the South may cast a shadow over the rapid realisation of the potential for cooperation. It is unfortunate that South-South trade is considerably more costly than South-North trade and North-North trade. Southern countries, as such, should work together to facilitate trade and increase access to markets by reducing tariff and non-tariff barriers.
