This report is the result of a joint research project by the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) and McKinsey & Company's Africa offices to look at the continent's economies. It seeks to examine the sources behind Africa's economic growth acceleration since 2000, analyze the prospects for future growth, and identify some of the most compelling business opportunities ahead. It also develops a framework for understanding how growth challenges and opportunities will differ for Africa's 53 individual countries.
