Sub-Saharan Africa's accelerating economic growth is expected to be broad based in 2010 and 2011, the IMF says in its latest regional forecast. Strong domestic demand and surging exports are projected to help boost growth in most of the region back to near pre-crisis levels.

Regional Economic Outlook for Sub-Saharan Africa
Economic conditions in sub-Saharan Africa have remained generally robust despite a sluggish global economy. The near-term outlook for the region remains broadly positive, and growth is projected at 5¼ percent a year in 2012–13. Most low-income countries are projected to continue to grow strongly, supported by domestic demand, including from investment. The outlook is less favorable for many of the middle-income countries, especially South Africa, that are more closely linked to European markets and thus experience a more noticeable drag from the external environment. The main risks to the outlook are an intensification of financial stresses in the euro zone and a sharp fiscal adjustment in the US–the so called fiscal cliff.
