Ports in Sub-Saharan Africa

PricewaterhouseCoopers published in April 2018 a 81-page report titled "Strengthening Africa's Gateways to Trade" by Francois Botes and Stacey Buck.

It is an analysis of port development in Sub-Saharan Africa. There has been a lag in African port investment. Improving the way ports are run and managed, creating greater capacity and reducing delays to shippers is key to making ports more efficient. The report suggests that China as Africa's largest trading partner has the most incentive other than African countries themselves to improve Africa's ports.
