African Economic Outlook 2019
Africa's GDP growth is projected to accelerate to 4.0 percent in 2019 and 4.1 percent in 2020 - but improved macroeconomic and employment outcomes require industry to lead growth, according to the 2019 African Economic Outlook report. Published annually since 2003, the African Development Bank’s flagship report provides headline numbers on Africa’s economic performance and outlook.
The 2019 report focuses on regional integration for Africa’s economic prosperity. At the core of African integration, the African Economic Outlook suggests that “a borderless Africa” is one of the key foundations of a competitive continental market. The Continental Free Trade Agreement (CFTA), signed in March 2018 by 44 African countries, offers substantial gains for all African countries the report says, citing new data and analytics.
