Since its inception in 2002, the African Economic Outlook (AEO) has been a comprehensive report that contains a continent-wide overview of the macroeconomic and structural policy situation and outlook and a theme chapter that analyses a timely topic relevant for African countries. The theme for 2012 is “Promoting Youth Employment in Africa”. In its present form, the AEO includes Country Notes that analyse the recent economic situation and prospects, as well as structural and social conditions for each African country in detail.
