Africa's Infra Market: Adjusting To Lower Commodity Prices

Current global economic conditions are weighing on Sub-Saharan Africa's (SSA) economic growth outlook, creating a ripple effect in the infrastructure sector. Previously investors were drawn to the region's resource profile and governments were able to fund social spending through fiscal revenues and eurobonds, but in a time of lower commodity prices this is no longer a sustainable growth model. In this podcast, BMI's SSA infrastructure analyst Richard Marshall and global economist Lisa Lewin discuss the changing growth outlook for SSA's infrastructure sector and the wider economy.
