Africa Economic Update

Africa Economic Update

Economic recovery in Sub-Saharan Africa weakened in 2018, according to the latest edition of Africa’s Pulse, the World Bank’s bi-annual analysis of the state of African economies. Despite a slower-than-expected overall recovery, several economies saw growth pick up in the final quarter of 2018. This edition of Africa’s Pulse also takes a closer look at how fragility is holding countries back, and the role of digital transformation in eradicating poverty.

Please join Mr. Albert Zeufack, Chief Economist for the Africa Region and Mr César Calderón, Lead Economist in the Africa Region to discuss Africa’s recent economic progress, challenges, and opportunities to sustain Africa’s development.
