Policy highlights:
  • Economic transformation is necessary to improve the quality of Africa’s growth.
  • In this process, new partnerships between public and private actors are essential.
  • African governments should promote industrialization through macro-level policies. These policies must take account of the constraints and needs of specific sectors of the economy and of micro-level challenges faced by private actors.
  • It is estimated that the value of Africa’s agricultural output could triple if the sector is adequately modernized, for example by investing in smallholder farms, technical assistance and innovative models of financing.
  • Infrastructure and energy play a cross-cutting role in enabling agricultural and industrial development. In addition, infrastructure projects provide excellent returns, promoting sustainable economic growth and poverty reduction.
