The Nigeria Trust Fund is a special African Development Bank fund created in 1976 by an agreement between the Bank Group and the Government of Nigeria.

Regional Integration in Africa.

Most of the Member Countries of the African Development Bank are small, undiversified and face physical, political, and policy-induced constraints to the deeper economic integration with their neighbor countries and global economy.

However, the economic cooperation and regional integration are fundamental if Africa surpasses the trade barriers and take its rightful place in the global market.

In the last forty years, the African Development Bank has promoted the Regional Economic Communities (REC) through the regional economic cooperation, international trade growth, capacity building and renewed assistance for the African Union Development Agency (AUDA-NEPAD) programs.

The African Development Bank also collaborates with the national governments and the pan-African Organizations; it is of particular importance with the African Union (AU) and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) to rationalize and streamline the Regional Economic Communities structures.
