The Atlantic on Africa’s Growth

A Sponsor (T. Rowe Price) posted this “article” in The Atlantic. It highlights Africa’s recent growth, and it is interesting data to see from a corporate, investment-based angle. They are quick to emphasize growth and the potential for more, painting a very positive picture for the continent’s future.

Africa’s steady and robust economic growth over the past decade has thrust the continent onto the world stage as a serious player. Local economies stagnated in every part of the world during the global recession of 2008 and 2009, but Sub-Saharan Africa was one of the least affected regions due to its relatively weak ties to the crisis epicenters in Europe and the U.S.–and its growth rate has returned to previous heights.”
