FocusEconomics Launches Sub-Saharan Africa Report, Expands Coverage to 107 Countries
We are pleased to announce the launch of our new Sub-Saharan Africa report. This report on 13 economies in Sub-Saharan Africa is the most comprehensive in-depth collection of macroeconomic data and analysis for the region available on the market. In fact, until now finding data on many economies in SSA had been a difficult if not nearly impossible task for many of our clients. The inagural edition of the Sub-Saharan Africa Consensus Forecast is available to download now.
“At FocusEconomics, we have seen the rising importance of Sub-Saharan Africa’s economy and more clients than ever are seeking reliable data and analysis on this region, which had previously been rather difficult to come by. We are pleased to announce that we are meeting the rising demand for economic intelligence for one of the world’s most dynamic regions,” said Arne Pohlman, Chief Economist at FocusEconomics.
The report compiles forecasts from leading local and global economic institutions such as BMI Research, Goldman Sachs, Oxford Economics, Citigroup, Econometrix, and HSBC, to name just a few.
The countries covered within the report are: Angola, Botswana, Côte d’Ivoire, DR Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.
The data and forecasts are accompanied by extensive expert written analysis from our team of economists on the key macroeconomic indicators within the report. These indicators include economic activity (GDP), industrial production, business confidence, consumer confidence, inflation, monetary policy decisions and important exchange rate movements, amongst others.
In addition, all the macroeconomic indicators are complimented with charts, which help to grasp past developments and future trends quickly and intuitively. In addition, an Excel file containing the raw data is available with each report for further analysis and scenario building.
“Africa’s economy has been quickly catching up in the past years, and today several economies in the region are among the fastest-growing in the world. Backed by favorable population dynamics, fast urbanization, a burgeoning middle class and rapidly-growing inter- and intra-regional trade, the region provides a plethora of business opportunities for the years ahead. Business leaders around the world have taken note and the continent is attracting an increasing share of global investment flows,” Arne added.
