In addition to economic outlook for the emerging markets, as a special topic for July’s Economic Watch Emerging Markets View, we will discuss Sub-Saharan Africa’s near- and medium-term growth outlook. The region has long been known for its lagging economic development, but the narrative has flipped in the past decade and sub-Sahara Africa has become better known for high economic growth. According to The Conference Board Global Economic Outlook 2016 projection, the region will become the fastest-growing region in the world for the next decade.

In this webcast special topic section, we will focus on the region’s recent economic and political development, change in investment climate, significant challenges the region faces, as well as some of the business opportunities the region can offer in the next decade.
