The African Transformation Report is generating debate on Africa’s economic future:
ECDPM Talking Points: “Beyond the fun of looking at how countries rank, the ATI may help push the transformation agenda forward in a number of ways – as well as the index, the analysis accompanying the ATI is also interesting.”
The Economist blog: “…unlike many development blueprints, the ACET report is grounded in economic reality.”
CNBC Africa: “According to the African Center for Economic Transformation, by 2050 Sub-Saharan Africa will have a larger and younger workforce than China or India.”
The Hewlett Foundation Blog: “The ACET report needs to be read, shared and debated by anyone with an interest in Africa’s economic (and social) future.”
Council on Foreign Relations blog: “…the African Transformation Report is a welcome check on the exuberance of the “Africa rising” narrative.
The Ghana Monitor: “ACET’s report…conveys the overarching message that sub-Saharan African countries must concentrate on more than just expanding their GDP…”
Business Day Live: “[The] report showed an increasing realisation by African governments that investing more in manufacturing sectors could help grow economies faster.”
Engineering News: “…the study urges African governments to position economic transformation ahead of growth at the centre of their economic and development policies.”
World Bank Blog: “The African Transformation Report contributes in a pragmatic and detailed way to a new narrative for Africa.”
