Fitch hosts on Jan 21st a webinar on Africa’s economic outlook in 2021. The discussion will cover the 5 key themes that are expected to dominate.
The region faced an extremely difficult year in 2020, with almost all markets experiencing either recession or a notable growth slowdown due to the impact of Covid-19. While the region will experience a growth rebound this year, the pandemic will continue to have a major impact in terms of policymaking and social tensions.
Meanwhile, political unrest will rise in East Africa, partly constraining performance in a region that is traditionally one of the continent’s key growth drivers.
