After the breakneck growth rates that characterised much of Africa's first decade in the 21st century, we are entering a more sober period. That is not to say the region is in freefall; while capital investment decreased by 24% to $66.5bn in 2015, the number of FDI projects increased by 6% to 705. Of these investments, 44% went into infrastructure related areas including power, construction and ICT.
