Is it still relevant today to be interested in the question of regional integration between North African countries?

The reflection on the pertinence of this issue is imperative for various reasons. It is not only a matter of fitting into the international wave of regional integration, but of conceiving an integration project that, while having a political vision, obeys an economic rationality, which includes incentives to private agents. This political vision, which reflects long-term strategic goals, justifies for the adoption in the short term of a proactive approach by member States, and the creation of conditions likely to stimulate propensity to trade between the economic operators of the region.
