Africa Growth Report
The featured 2012 Africa Growth Index in this report looks at the perceptions created about the continent. Rather than measuring actual growth, the Index, which is published annually, compares how media coverage on individual African countries reflects reality. It draws, amongst others from the reputable Mo Ibrahim Index, which contains a wealth of information on the democratic progress of African countries. With solid and tangible variables, this index itself allows for the detailed assessment of the African context and of particular importance, provides historical data. Experts in the field of political, social and economic analysts provide further background for a more thorough understanding of the opportunities and challenges presenting themselves to Africa in 2012.
