Summary:
Countries in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) tend to lag those in other regions in terms of governance and perceptions of corruption. Weak governance undermines economic performance through various channels. It thus stands to reason that SSA countries could strengthen their economic performance by improving governance and reducing corruption. This paper estimates that strengthening governance and mitigating corruption in the region could be associated with large growth dividends in the long run. Moving the average SSA country governance level to the global average could increase its annual GDP per capita growth by about 1-2 percentage points.
