Even in countries that have undertaken significant policy reforms, these have not led to the expected improvements in economic growth and external performance. One major area of concern is that the over-riding emphasis on short-term stabilisation policies and the zealous pursuit of rigorous macro-economic targets is actually harming long-term growth prospects in Africa. A crucial immediate task for most countries in Africa is to rebuild the primary commodity export sector. Although few countries in Africa are facing the scale of inflows relative to the size of their economies that precipitated the Asian crisis, key lessons concern the importance of developing sound financial systems, appropriate sequencing, avoiding overly rigid exchange rate regimes and caution in financial opening.
