Weekly Security Readings

Africa’s economic outlook continues to brighten. Its real GDP growth, estimated at 3.4 percent for 2019, is projected to accelerate to 3.9 percent in 2020 and to 4.1 percent in 2021. Growth’s fundamentals are also improving, with a gradual shift from private consumption toward investment and exports. And for the first time in a decade, investment accounted for more than half the continent’s growth, with private consumption accounting for less than one third. The 2020 Outlook highlights, however, that growth has been less than inclusive.

L’Afrique est une région économique à grand potentiel, malgré les risques qui jalonnent son processus de développement. En effet, de nombreux experts s’accordent à dire que l’Afrique est en train de devenir la nouvelle frontière de la croissance mondiale. Boosté par une riche dotation en ressources naturelles, une population jeune et dynamique, une forte urbanisation, des conditions macro-économiques mieux stabilisées, des politiques économiques plus rigoureuses, un climat des affaires en constante amélioration ainsi qu’une gouvernance en progrès, le continent africain est sur le trend d’une transformation structurelle, encore lente mais réelle.

Headlines across the OSCE region confront us with the grim reality every day. Violent extremism and terrorism are a constant threat to peace and security. They seek to undermine the very values on which the OSCE is based — values such as tolerance, inclusion, and diversity. To protect our values and our citizens, we need to respond to violence when it occurs but ideally prevent violence before it occurs.

The new year 2020 marks the beginning of a promising decade for Africa. Through at least the first half of the decade, economic growth across Africa will continue to outperform that of other regions, with the continent continuing to be home to seven of the world’s 10 fastest-growing economies. Collective action among African and global policymakers to improve the livelihoods of all under the blueprint of the Sustainable Development Goals and the African Union’s Agenda 2063 is representative of the shared energy and excitement around Africa’s potential.
