African Economic Outlook 2018

2018

Financing Africa's infrastructure development is the special theme of the 2018 edition of the African Development Bank's "African Economic Outlook". The report highlights that Africa's infrastructure needs amount to $130–$170 billion a year, with a financing gap of $68–$108 billion. Flagging up that institutional investors manage more than $100 trillion in assets globally, the report suggests that just a small fraction of the excess global savings and low-yield resources would be enough to plug Africa’s financing gap, and finance productive and profitable infrastructure.
