The aim of The State of African Cities 2018: The geography of African investment report is to contribute to development policies that can turn African cities into more attractive, competitive and resilient foreign direct investment (FDI) destinations.

In many countries, vehicle growth rates are higher than gross domestic product (GDP) growth rates.
