The African continent?s economy is projected to grow by 4.8% in 2013 and 5.3% in 2014; but that could improve if countries enhance the management of their mineral resources.

The West Africa economic region, also known as the Economic Community of West African States (Ecowas), remains the fastest growing economy on the continent, with Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast and Ghana being amongst the countries with the highest real Growth Domestic Product (GDP) growth for 2013/14.

Announcing the continent?s economic outlook at the Hilton Hotel in Sandton on Wednesday, Mthuli Ncube, a chief economist for the African Development Bank, said regional integration, in terms of infrastructure investment and maximising revenue from mineral resources, was the best way for Africa?s economies to improve growth.
