7 . South Africa companies remain largely dominant.. Oil and mining: 33.2% of sales. Big industries are paving the way Sales of SSA biggest companies (US$ bn). FTSE ASEA Pan Africa index increased by around 20% in Source: The Africa Report - Top 500 African companies 7 7.3% 5.7%

8 . Africa has twice as many mobile phones as the USA.. Mpesa (Kenya) has become a global leader in mobile banking and is selling its technology to India. Technology (mobile) is breaking through Mobile: the door to modernity. Mobile phone is decreasing costs, improving efficiency.. Nigeria is distributing subsidized inputs to 1.5 million farmers through cell phones. Source: MobileMarketingWatch 8

9 Entrepreneurs are building success stories Mr. Dangote ranked 76th world richest* *Source: Forbes. Current activities: cement, sugar, flour, salt….. Company expected to be listed on the London Stock Exchange in February 2013: signature of a strategic agreement with General Electric to collaborate on power, transportation and oil & gas. 9

10 Entrepreneurs are dedicated to the continent Mr. Mo Ibrahim created his Foundation. Mr. Mo Ibrahim made a remarkable success in mobile telecommunications with Celtel which was sold in The Mo Ibrahim Foundation was created in 2006 to stimulate good governance and leadership in Africa. 10

11 The culture industry is not left over The second largest film industry in the world NOLLYWOOD: the star of Afrotainment. Second largest employer in Nigeria. 56% of movies in local language. Average DVD sale: 25-50,000 copies. 300 producers. Above 1,000 films per year. Average cost: US$ 20,000 per film 11

12 The middle class is driving growth Middle class size in Africa (million). Middle class expected to double in 20 years.. Consumer spending (US$ 1tr) similar to India, higher than Russia.. Passenger cars import in SSA increased by 25%+ in Q (YOY) and 250%+ in Rwanda.. Nestlé invested US$ 1 bn in Source: African Development Bank %

13 The overall security has improved Source: Uppsala University Conflicts are regressing. The number of deaths by violence has decreased due to the reduction of conflicts and their intensity following the democratization of the continent.. Successful coups in Africa were down from 20 during to 7 during

14 Growth is not inclusive enough Source: World Bank 2012 Extreme poverty headcount ratio (%). The ILO* estimates that between 2000 and 2007, the working age population grew by 96 million but only 63 million jobs were created.. Unemployment hits the youth.. Most countries are not on track to achieve the Millennium Development Goals by * International Labour Organization 14 Sub-Saharan Africa East Asia & the Pacific Required Millenium Development Goal progress

15 Political and civil rights are not progressing Source: Freedom House Classification of countries. During the last ten years, political and civil freedom has not improved significantly.. On the other side, many elections held in 2011 showed that peaceful political alternation is possible. 15

16 What are the drivers of change? 16

17 Macro policies have produced results Source: IMF, World Bank data Foreign exchange reserves / External debt. Debt reduction strategies together with external trade oriented policies resulted in a dramatic improvement of SSA countries savings and solvency.. All recent sovereign bond issues are oversubscribed.. 9 sovereign wealth funds created. 10 to be created soon. 17

18 Foreign financing to SSA has surged Source: IMF. Foreign flows: x10 in 10 years.. Remittances: over US$ 30 billion per year.. Funds going to the private sector: average return on investment is the highest in the world. Destination of funds: public vs private 18

19 Intra-African foreign direct investment is emerging. The share of intra-African investment has more than doubled in the last 8 years at the expense of developed markets.. Leading investors come from South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya. Number of projects 19

20 There is a dramatic shift in trading partners Destination of SSA exports Excluding oil exporting countriesOil exporting countries. Current switch from Europe to BICs. Trade, not aid. Resources driven.. Intra-African trade still low despite efforts of economic communities.. Diversification of partners has been an engine for growth: reduction of export volatility, better terms of trade, scale economies. Source: IMF 20

21 Investment in infrastructure has been crucial The future new air terminal in Lomé, Togo. Infrastructure contributed to 50% of SSA past growth.. Current annual spendings: US$ 45 bn.. Improving infrastructure halfway to regional best practice (Mauritius) would increase GDP by 4.4%*. * World Economic Forum

22 Africa has a buried treasure A vast potential in underground resources. Africa is not richly endowed with major minerals like copper, lead, zinc.. Africa’s mining sector accounts for just 10% of the world production.. «African subsurface per ground km² is estimated at around $25,000 compared to $125,000 in developed countries»*, showing that Africa is underexplored. * Collier and Venables, Gold40% Chromium & Platinum 80% to 90% Oil10% Share of world reserves Source: Mc Kinsey Global Institute, June 2010

23 Africa can help feed the world SSA: 45% of the potential available land. Productivity can be boosted: no country in Africa is now achieving more than 30% of the potential yield on currently cultivated areas (World Bank).. Africa is ripe for a green revolution and the first stage of this revolution is the land rush we are witnessing now. 23 Global surface in millions of ha Sub Saharan AfricaLatin AmericaMenaAsiaRest of the world 2,047 Source: FAO, Fischer and Shah % 46% Potential arable land Cultivated land

24 Labor productivity has been unleashed. For the first time since the eighties, productivity of labor increased, and at a higher pace than labor force.. This gives scope for increased per capita revenues. Evolution of productivity 1 Used working age population (15-64) as a proxy for labor force Source: Conference Board World Economy Database; McKinsey Global Institute 24

25 Demography supports general productivity Dependency ratio Dependency ratio. Today, SSA has the worst dependency ratio. Twice as much as China.. However, it is constantly declining since 1985, giving a boost to Africa’s competitiveness. Source: United Nations Non working population (<15;64<) for 100 people at working age (15-64) 25

26 Urbanization is stimulating growth The development of cities in Africa. The advantages of the city: it is more cost-efficient to manage transport, food distribution and most services.. Labor is available.. If urbanization triggers higher productivity, it is a big challenge. 26

27 Efforts are made for better education Source: United Nations, Renaissance. SSA at the level of Mexico, Turkey in But there are still concerns about quality: facilities, teachers. Secondary school gross enrolment rates 27

28 In Ghana, the mining company AngloGold Ashanti invested around US$ 7 million in a comprehensive program against malaria with the following results: Better health fosters productivity. In Africa, Malaria mortality rate was reduced by 33% since Life expectancy at birth in SSA: 49.5 in 1990; 49.7 in 2000; 54.2 in Experience shows that investment in water, sanitation and health yields between 4$ and 60$ per 1$ invested. Fighting against malaria: a prominent example 28 Cases in AngloGold’s hospital (number per month) , ,146 Drug expenditures (US$ per month) 55,000 9,800 Work days lost (number per month) 6,

29 Trade integration is slowly taking off Total bilateral African trade. Africa has integrated with the rest of the world, mostly selling commodities, faster than with itself.. Nevertheless, intra African trade has grown at the same pace as all African trade at 17% a year for the last 10 years. Source: Ernst & Young’s 2012 Africa attractiveness survey. Total respondents:

30 Perception is still a big obstacle Perception of Africa relative to other regions Source: Ernst & Young’s 2012 Africa attractiveness survey. Total respondents: 505. For investors with no presence in Africa, the continent is still viewed as relatively unattractive against all regions.. It is the contrary for investors having knowledge of Africa.. Major factors: political instability, corruption, difficulty of doing business. Africa is less attractive than…Africa is more attractive than… 30

31 What to do next? 31

32 Millenium Development Goals Public management Employment Social protection Health care Gender equality Justice Capital availibility Education Infrastructure Corruption Regional integration Food Fiscal policy So many things to do! - The governance challenge Competitiveness Natural resources Housing Security Entrepreneurship HIV 32 SSA needs faster, more inclusive growth

33 SSA needs to implement countless projects to boost its development Foreign/local funds and partners are increasingly available Implement a new public management method SSA’s absorption capacity is far too low  Despite this very favorable context, the result has been disappointing: too many projects take too long to implement when they do not fail.  Governments need to implement a new management method focused on the rapid execution of development projects with the creation of highly specialized teams: Project Delivery Squads 33

34 Innovate in infrastructure finance. Another US$ 40 billion per year need to be mobilized. Possible sources: China, investment funds, local…. Principle: bottleneck hunting, defragmenting the space (create regional spaces), cost cutting. Infrastructure density in SSA is weak (as a percentage of the density of other low income countries) 34 Source: Economic Commission for Africa, African Union 2012

35 Care about cities, strengthen local governments Source: United Nations data Urban rural population are growing in SSA. Urban population growth: 3.7%.. People need housing, water, power, food, jobs…. Urban planning, land use regulation, property rights… are urgently needed. 35 Revolutions come from cities

37 The macro environment Quality of economic and social policies (Source: 2012 Mo Ibrahim index of African governance) GDP growth (average 2011, 2012, 2013) minus current urban population increase (Source: World Bank data) Level of growth InsufficientSufficient Level of inclusion Low High Average 37

38 The business environment Ease of Doing Business (world ranking) (Source: World Bank, 2012 figures) Weight of natural resources in the GDP (Log) (Source: World Bank Data, 2010) Resource curse Low riskHigh risk Incentive to private activity Low High Bubble: size of GDP Average % %
