Fee: Free Africa's economies have been impacted by a number of major factors in the global economy, particularly the slowdown of the Chinese economy and the end of the commodity super cycle. Major economies such as those of Nigeria and Angola have slid into recession. However, others have experienced good growth in spite of these global factors. These include several economies in East Africa.
