Curb Inequality & Create Jobs - ECA Advises Ministers

Africa grew 3.1% in 2017, up from 1.6 percent in 2016, and growth in 2018 and 2019 is projected to be higher, according to statistics presented by the Economic Commission for Africa to the Conference of African Ministers of Finance, Planning and Economic Development in Addis Ababa. But to achieve inclusive growth, the continent must confront serious developmental challenges - poverty, inequality and lack of decent jobs.
