Description

The report notes that growth recovered from a two-decade low of 1.3 percent in 2016 to an estimated 2.4 percent in 2017, and is projected to improve further to 3.6 percent in 2020. The report finds that certain sectors show potential for high growth due to productivity gains or consumer demands. Food production and agriculture stand out in a region that continues to import food while a rapidly urbanizing population requires more choice. Africa’s needs in infrastructure remain vast, and range from power to transport to sanitation, among other areas.
