The article focuses on the political division of West Africa. The recent division of West Africa into what often appear to be two quite irreconcilable groups of independent states has seemed to justify the worst fears of those who have held that personal rivalries and cold-war issues would destroy African hopes for unity of outlook and action. The Conakry meeting recommended ending customs barriers between the Casablanca countries over a five-year period beginning January 1, 1962, and ending quota systems and preferential treatment on the same date. It also proposed creation of a Council of African Economic Unity and an African Economic Development Bank. The Casablanca countries now include Ghana, Guinea, Morocco, Mali, the U.A.R. and the Algerian provisional government; Libya was present at the meeting last January which gave the group its name but appears to have dropped out, and instead met with the Monrovia governments represented at Dakar, Senegal. The Dakar conference's recommendations cover the whole field of cooperation: a network of roads, a joint shipping company, amalgamation of existing airways, etc.
