Economies in Recovery: Sub-saharan Africa outlook 2022


The economy of Sub-Saharan Africa is expected to grow by 3.7 percent in 2021 and 3.8 percent in 2022. The region is expected to rebound; however, growth will vary across countries and the road to recovery may be a long and difficult one.

The world is still grappling with the COVID-19 pandemic and a seemingly accelerating rate of climate change, both of which highlight the need for greater global cooperation and dialogue.

As the pandemic continues, uncertainty remains high, keeping risks skewed to the downside leaving authorities with few options other than costly containment measures and the need for ongoing emergency support and health spending.

With the World Bank estimating that over 50% of inhabitants will be under 25 by 2050, Africa presents substantial opportunities for investors who can spot important trends and make informed decisions based on robust and timely economic data.

This webinar will share more insights into the complete picture of the current African macro environment, emerging trends and gain an understanding of the road to recovery – areas of opportunity, reforms, investments and more uncertainty etc.
