Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2018)
Prof. Dr. Frank W. Agbola
In a changing and unpredictable global economy, Africa is at a crossroads. Despite efforts by governments in Africa to sustain economic growth and development, the recent trajectory appears mixed. Many countries in Africa continue to experience increasing poverty, environmental degradation and other serious problems. These issues have become increasingly important following the global financial crisis where African countries have experienced declines in capital flows and slowing of economies. The widespread global challenges have meant the need for African countries to develop effective policies for ensuring sustainable economic growth and development. This Special Issue is devoted to examining the major challenges facing African countries and exploring the opportunities for achieving sustainable economic growth and development in the changing and ever volatile global economy. We welcome original papers relating to all aspects of economic growth and development in Africa.
