An Analysis of Issues shaping Africa’s Economic Future

Delivering sustainable economic growth
Posted Apr 15, 2019 | World Bank

Economic growth in Sub-Saharan Africa is estimated to have decelerated from 2.5 percent in 2017 to 2.3 percent in 2018, below the population growth rate for a fourth consecutive year. This issue of the World Bank’s Africa's Pulse argues that to make their economies more resilient to risks in a challenging external environment, African countries must strengthen domestic conditions. The digital economy could unlock new pathways for inclusive growth, innovation, job creation, service delivery and poverty reduction. However, the continent still lags the rest of the world in access to broadband, the internet and digital ID. Business must adopt digital technologies and more governments must invest strategically in digital infrastructure, services, skills, and entrepreneurship.
