The Service Sector and Economic Development in Africa, Hardback Book


The service sector accounts for a huge proportion of global employment, and is the biggest driver of gross domestic product in developing nations.

Yet there has been little research uncovering its scope, potential and implications on sustained and inclusive economic growth.

This is especially true for Africa, which has seen a strong growth trajectory in recent years.

This book presents a new frontier of research, offering insightful perspectives on the 21st-century realities of the service sector and its effect on economic development in Africa. The analysis presented here will be of relevance to academics and policymakers with an interest in Africa's role in the global economy.
