Domestic and External Financial Flows

OECD Development Centre

External and tax revenue resources available for development in Africa have tripled over the past decade and have never been so high. In 2011, external finances recovered to pre-crisis levels with foreign investment (FDI), official development assistance (ODA) and remittances estimated at USD 152.2 billion. As a share of Africa’s gross domestic product, external flows doubled from 6.8% in 2000 to 12.3% in 2006, but were still down at an estimated 8.2% in 2011.
