This 11th edition of the African Economic Outlook (AEO) is marked by a “twin-track” performance: while the North African region gradually recovers from the political events that affected several countries, sub-Saharan Africa is growing strongly. The continent is well placed to press ahead with structural reforms and lay the groundwork for strong and sustainable growth in the medium term.
