Course description - African Business and Economy.

Economic growth of Africa: 5-6%

  1. East Africa: 6.2%
  2. West Africa: 7% (fastest African growth)
  3. Central Africa: 5.7%
  4. Southern Africa: 4.4%
  5. North Africa and: 5.5%.


  1. Energy cost
  2. Food and commodities prices
  3. Tax revenues
  4. Inflationary pressures
  5. External financial flows
  6. Official development assistance
  7. Improved Intra-African trade performance
  8. Top African exports: mainly commodities
  9. Regional Integration
  10. Infrastructures
  11. Private consumption

The proportion of Africans living on less than 1.25 dollars a day fell from 58% in 1996 to 50%.

The creation of several institutions related to economic integration in Africa was expected to increase intra-African trade in products.

Such International Trade augmented from 2% in the early 1980s to 9% of total African exports, but these statistics underestimate the actual flows as they do not include unrecorded external trade, which is thought to be crucial.

Even with this caution, the intra-African trade flows are low in comparison to those in other regions and relative to African foreign trade potential.

The analysis of the foreign trade destinations show that notwithstanding low aggregate level of intra-African trade, such regional trade is vital for many African Countries.

At least 25% of exports from twenty African Countries are absorbed by the regional market. The magnitude of trade blocs is highlighted by the fact that 75% of intra-African trade takes place within these regional groups.

Africa has a long tradition of cross-border investment but the lack of reliable data has constrained a detailed analysis. The limited data available show that intra-African Foreign investment represents 13% of total inward Foreign direct investment. This level is less than 50% the figure for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations region, where intraregional investment represents 30% of total Foreign direct investment (FDI).

Developing Trade in Services is a key component of successful regional integration in Africa. The services stand for, or have the potential to become, important export earnings sources for numerous African Countries.
