Tobacco Track & Trace Systems Across Africa

Africa Consulting Team

Oxford Economics Africa

The objective of this study is to review the progress some African countries have made in implementing track & trace (T&T) systems, to assess the effectiveness of these systems, and to evaluate their compliance with the Protocol.

The study then evaluates the regional T&T regime implemented across the 27 European Union (EU) countries and considers the potential advantages of a regional approach from an African context. Finally, it makes recommendations for African countries to improve the ITP compliance and the efficacy of their national T&T systems.

Based on a review of the FCTC ITP and solutions currently implemented in Africa and the EU, it is recommended that African nations implement fully digital T&T solutions and adopt a regional approach where possible.

This should aid the outlook for commercial real estate (CRE) on the margins, although the scale of past rate hikes, sluggish economies, and structural headwinds mean the sector still confronts challenging fundamentals.

Geographic allocation alpha makes a comeback in CRE investment

While we expect that sector selection will still be an important component to generating alpha in commercial real estate investment, we think the thematic drivers that are likely to support outperformance over the next decade will require more emphasis on selecting for geography.
