African Economic Outlook 2005/2006
Published by the OECD Development Centre and the African Development Bank, with financial support from the European Commission
The African Economic Outlook is a truly unique tool for understanding the economic and social developments of African countries in 2005 and their short term prospects. The report is indispensable to decision makers in African and OECD countries, and is of interest to aid agencies, investors and government officials. Its wide country coverage and methods of analysis are compulsory reading for all those who seek further insight into the economic successes and challenges faced by the African continent.
The African Economic Outlook combines the expertise of the OECD Development Centre and the African Development Bank. This fifth edition of the AEO offers a comparative panorama of the economic, political and social evolution of 30 African economies from 2005 to 2007, covering 87 per cent of the population and 90 per cent of the continent’s revenue. It also assesses progress towards achieving the MDGs and displays a statistical annex, bringing together data collected locally in each country and original indicators.
Each year, the Outlook provides an in-depth analysis of a topic critical for Africa’s development prospects. In this year’s edition, the focus is on transport infrastructure.
