The 2010 African Economic Outlook finds the continent reeling from the effects of the world’s deepest and most widespread recession in half a century. Many countries are at risk of falling far off track to achieving the Millennium Development Goal of halving extreme poverty and hunger by 2015. Just how hard was the region hit? What are the prospects for recovery? Insights and answers in this edition including an in-depth study of Taxation and Aid in Africa.

It was presented in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire at the 45th African Development Bank Annual Meetings, on May 24.

Now in its ninth year, the  AEO is the only report on Africa which applies a common analytical framework to every country, every year. This allows for a comparison of economic prospects at the regional, sub-regional and country levels.

 

Produced by the OECD Development Centre, the African Development Bank and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, the AEO is the essential reference on Africa. It benefits from the support of the European Commission.
