Sub-Saharan Africa | 1st Quarter 2014

Africa remains one of the regions that is full of potential but difficult to capture accurately. Trade data is one way of demonstrating how the economies of the region are growing. Nigeria and South Africa are relatively well integrated into the global trading system: Nigeria’€™s exports of oil are fueling rapid import growth to develop infrastructures and to fuel growing consumer demand while South Africa’€™s exports of iron ore are forecast to grow in 2014 by over 15% and of cars by over 10%.
