Productivity Gains

Low dependency ratios, reduced political risk and declining incidence of corruption are fueling a spectacular rise in labour productivity

  • Dependency ratios at all-time low - working class Africans are in position to accumulate, save and invest a greater proportion of discretionary income
  • Over 90% of African nations now hold regular democratic elections deemed free and fair - political risk premiums poised to decline
  • Declining incidence of corruption - improved conditions for future investment
  • Spectacular rise in labour productivity - growth rate of 2.7% p.a. since 2000
  • Rising trend of urbanisation - over 50% of Africans will live in cities by 2030
  • Africa will be comprised of 17 cities generating at least $10 billion in annual revenue by 2020
