The Economic Report on Africa (ERA), the annual flagship publication of the ECA, has two main objectives: Undertake a comprehensive assessment of the performance of African economies and thereby assist the monitoring and evaluating economic performances in the continent. Undertake an in-depth of study of an issue that is key to Africa's development and thereby enhance the ability of the ECA and its member states to effectively contribute to the ongoing discourse on Africa's development. This year's theme is private sector development. The report will analyse and provide policy recommendations on four key themes of private sector development that are crucial to Africa and have the potential to transform the private sector into an engine of growth. The report will consist of thirteen chapters on the economic performance of Africa and highlighting the experiences of the sample countries. Furthermore, the theme of private sector development will run through the report where appropriate.
