Trade in Africa

  •  Growth in Africa’s trade with the rest of the  world  has  grown  over  fourfold since  2000 and has  been  the  key driver of Africa’s sustained  economic  growth. According to the IMF, 11 of the world’s 20 fastest­growing economies through 2017 will be African.
  • The IMF forecasts that between 2016 and 2020, Africa will reach annual growth of 4.3%, which continue to be higher than many other developing and emerging regions worldwide.
  • “Despite recent shocks and challenges, Africa’s household consumption and business spending are both growing strongly, offering companies a $5.6 trillion opportunity by 2025 […] Sixty percent of consumption growth has come from an expanding population, and the rest from incomes rising enough to fuel spending on discretionary goods and services as well as basic necessities—all powered by rapid urbanization.” (McKinsey, September 2016)

Trade in Asia

  • Across developing Asia, growth will continue to remain resilient in the 2016-18 forecast, reaching 5.7 % growth in 2017-18. In addition, domestic demand will remain robust across much of the region over the next three years. (Asian Development Bank, 2016)

Trade in Latin America

  • Looking ahead in 2017, growth in Latin America is expected to pick up to almost 2% and private consumption will remain solid due to unchanging employment growth in non-resources provinces. Ongoing recovery in the United States will continue to brighten growth outlook for Central America.
