Overview of the Economic Report on Africa 2006: "Recent economic trends in Africa and prospects for 2006"
Description:The present report reviews the economic and social conditions in Africa for
2005. It also presents an outlook for medium-term developments and prospects for
growth in 2006. Overall, the report finds that economic conditions in the region have
improved over the recent period but much more remains to be done to significantly
reduce poverty and improve social conditions in Africa. The report concludes with a
set of policy recommendations aimed at accelerating and sustaining growth in
African countries as a means of creating more employment, reducing poverty and
improving social conditions consistent with achieving the Millennium Development
Goals.
