Despite the downturn in commodity-rich economies, Africa still offers some of the best investment returns in the world. Most of 2018’s top performers are non-commodity intensive economies. The World Bank forecasts GDP growth of 3.2% for the year 2018, up from 2.4% in 2017. It also predicts slightly higher GDP growth for 2019 of 3.5%. 2018 is going to be a good year for sub-Saharan Africa’s economies.
