World economic and financial surveys


Among the conclusions in the executive summary of this International Monetary Fund study of the economic outlook in sub-Saharan Africa are that the region is one of the hardest hit by the worldwide economic slowdown, that the Gleneagles commitment of the G-8 heads of state to double aid to Africa by 2010 seems increasingly unlikely to be met, and that the power sector in sub-Saharan Africa requires urgent attention. Four chapters describe the study's findings and break them down at times by country and at others by industry or service.
