Initiatives aimed at strengthening regional economic cooperation and integration play an increasingly important role for economic development in Asia. Apart from facilitating production processes by promoting the regional division of labour, the initiatives help their members move beyond the confines of domestic markets. Africa, the Heads of State and Government resolved to expand its mandate to cover political as well as regional integration issues. As a result, the Authority was re-launched in as the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) to address some twenty areas . economic integration. The real economic power in Africa, however, rests with the regional eco-nomic communities and thus far little integration has been accomplished at the continental level. The regional communities are primarily economic agree-ments, although some also have provisions for political and military cooperation. Economic integration is the unification of economic policies between different states, through the partial or full abolition of tariff and non-tariff restrictions on trade.. The trade-stimulation effects intended by means of economic integration are part of the contemporary economic Theory of the Second Best: where, in theory, the best option is free trade, with free competition and no trade.
