Eastern and Southern Africa

This remains Africa’s poorest and least economically developed region. Kenya and Angola are its largest countries by GDP and Kenya is the largest country by stock market capitalization in this region. The recent oil and gas discoveries in Uganda and Kenya, as well as the development of oil fields in Southern Sudan, will spur significant foreign capital investment in the region. Botswana, Zimbabwe, Angola and Democratic Republic of Congo, continue to be favored destinations for metal and mining investments.
