Produced by the African Union and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA), the report shows that the continent posted an economic growth rate of 4.7 per cent for 2010, and was expected to reach 5 per cent this year, as it recovered from the global economic crisis.

United Nations Industrial and Development Organization (UNIDO) have also published Agribusiness for Africa’s Prosperity, presenting the state-of-the-art of agribusiness development in Africa. This work analyses the challenges, the potential and opportunities of African agribusiness in the current period of dramatic changes in global agro-industrial markets, and builds a case for agribusiness development as a path to Africa’s prosperity.
