IMF Projects Solid Growth for Sub-Saharan Africa in the Face of Headwinds
Press Release No. 15/179
April 28, 2015
Introducing the April 2015 IMF Regional Economic Outlook: Sub-Saharan Africa, Ms. Antoinette Sayeh, Director of the IMF’s African Department commented today:
Strong Growth in Sub-Saharan Africa, but Pockets of Difficulty
- Infrastructure, services, agriculture driving growth in most economies
- Positive outlook overshadowed by Ebola impact in affected countries
- Goals are high, inclusive growth and addressing fiscal risks in a few countries
