Brief of the paper
Morning Economy by Mekki ELMOGRABI
Presented in African Forum – Khartoum, the Development Circle
The term was coined by Mekki ELMOGRABI in June 2020. Morning Economy is an economic orientation that gives a priority to developing, formalizing, and legalizing the transactions that happen in open areas or markets during the morning time, from dawn to noon. The examples are the community markets, producer markets, border markets, and the free zones that deal –specifically- with regional direct trade and not the global one. Mekki claims that Morning Economy is the best approach for improving the national economies of African countries and boosting Intra-Africa trade. the definition applies also to all underdeveloped and developing countries.
