Southern Africa Quarterly Review and Analysis – 4th Quarter 2013 - Issue 11
The Southern Africa region closed the year on an overall positive note, notwithstanding the downward revisions in growth projections seen in nearly half of the countries covered. Early indications show that the average growth rate for 2013 was 4.3 percent, only slightly lower than the 4.4 percent predicted in the third quarter. On a positive note, growth was strong in Mozambique, Zambia and Angola and picked up in Malawi and Swaziland. Mozambique continued on a strong growth path driven by growth in the mining sectors (coal) and in transport and communications.
