dc.description.abstractThe economic performance of Eastern Africa has been impressive in recent years, with an average annual growth rate of 6.5 per cent between 2012 and 2016 much higher than the African average and even outpacing East Asia. The people of the region live longer and healthier, receive better education, and enjoy an improved quality of life compared with just a generation ago. These positive results are largely attributable to increased state capacity, as governments in the region have rebuilt their institutions after the ‘lost decades’ of the 1980s and 1990s. Where state action has been effective, improvements have been largest. Despite the positive developments, there are a number of challenges looming on the horizon. Amid the severe drought conditions which afflicted parts of the region. One of the key questions this report asks is whether the region is about to enter into a new dynamic, with slower growth rates and growing developmental challenges. To avoid such a scenario, some key constraints to growth would need to be addressed. Firstly, a weak manufacturing sector has made the regional economy less resilient. Secondly, this report stresses the need to continue improving the business environment. Thirdly, the prospects for economic diversification and industrial growth are greatly improved by the necessary investments in infrastructure. Fourthly, in the context of structural current account deficits, regional economies have to better manage exchange rate fluctuation. Fifthly, the region is still under performing in terms of exports, as evidenced by the large trade deficits sustained by most countries.en
