Economic Growth in Africa: From Bottom Billion to Fastest Billion?
Recent research by economists and other specialists at Renaissance Capital indicates that nine of the fastest-growing economies are in sub-Saharan Africa. It has found that five of these booming African nations are not associated with either energy or metals exports, suggesting that China’s demand for global commodities cannot be the only reason for this significant improvement. Following a short presentation of the findings, the panel will debate the bold prediction that Africa will surpass Asian tigers to stand out as the economic growth story of the next decade.
