Africa’s overall growth has slowed, but new research shows long-term fundamentals are strong and there are big business opportunities ahead.
The IMF projects that Africa will be the world’s second-fastest-growing region in the period to 2020.
It describes the following four fundamentals that are likely to underpin Africa’s economic growth:
Africa’s rate of urbanisation is the fastest in the world.
Africa will by 2034 have the largest working-age population in the world.
Africa has the largest reserves of key natural resources and 60% of the planet’s unutilised cropland.
- Africa will leapfrog old technologies.
