Fingo’s Statement at the Presentation of the African Economic Outlook 2023 report

Economic growth in Africa has good projections. However, poverty and especially inequality have not and are not decreasing sufficiently. Decisions on economic investments should be taken in a way that decreases inequality. Without this consideration it is possible to achieve economic growth – but not sustainable development. Civil society can become partners to planning and implementing development that leaves no one behind, mobilising private sector finance and to ensuring a stable investment environment.
