Sub-Saharan Africa is expected to show 5% growth in 2011, according to the International Fund's latest regional report.
Its outlook for next year is even brighter, with 6% average growth.

She told the BBC it could mean "lower exports, inward investment（对内投资） flows and decreasing aid levels".
Ms Sayeh also said that inflation, driven by high food and fuel prices, could become a problem.
She advised governments of the need to "tread a fine line between addressing the challenges posed by strong growth and preparing to off the potentially effects（不良反应） of another global downturn".
Middle-income countries, most South Africa, have not had the same success, with growth of 3.5% this year.
The region has been hit by high unemployment and household debt, fragile consumer confidence and weak demand from Europe.
