Tropical Africa, a late starter, is now inextricably bound up in the world economy. Colonialism characterized its entry. Politically, independence is now replacing colonialism in the area, and economic change follows. How that transition takes place will be of importance to Tropical Africa and the world. In the brief compass of this paper, an attempt will be made to describe the relationships which Tropical Africa has developed with the world economy, the way in which they are changing, and some of the main questions posed in this transition period.
