African Economic Integration

Infrastructure has been a significant driver of the strong economic growth in the African economies in the last years. The international transport sector in Africa requires 18 billion dollars in annual investment, 50% for operations and maintenance.

  1. The largest countries that are financing infrastructures in Africa are China (13.4 billion dollars), Brazil, India, and South Korea
  2. The most attractive African Countries for investment in infrastructures are South Africa, Kenya, Ghana, Mozambique, Tanzania, Botswana, Uganda, Angola, Namibia, and Zambia
  3. Substantial investments in information and communications technology and infrastructures will be made to meet the market demand for the telecommunications services in twenty-four countries of Sub-Saharan Africa
  4. Africa has benefited from some significant optimizations in infrastructure
  5. 50% of the African population lives in range of a GSM mobile phone signal
  6. Five African Countries have already met the UN Millennium Goals for universal water access, and twelve others are on-track to do so, 80% of the African main road network is in good or fair condition
  7. Only 33% of rural Africans has access to an all-season Roads, 20% of the population in Cameroon, Ghana, Mauritania, Niger, and Tanzania must travel 2 kilometers to their main water supply
  8. African Consumers should pay double as much for basic services as people elsewhere in the World, a monthly basket of prepaid mobile telephone services costs 12 USD in Africa but only 2 USD in South Asia
