Africa's economic growth to surpass global average, says World Bank

  • Economic growth in sub-Saharan Africa is expected to surpass the global average over the next three years, according to the World Bank on Monday.

    The continent’s economic growth could rise to 5 percent due to higher commodities, increasing investment and a general pick-up in the global economy.

    However, the World Bank added in its report that African governments must do more to ensure that this growth reduces poverty.

    Global GDP is forecast to grow by an average of 2.4 percent this year.
