Which is Africa's most competitive country?

The World Economic Forum has released its latest Global Competitiveness Report, ranking 140 economies around the world in what they claim is "the most comprehensive assessment of its kind." The 2015-2016 report takes into account factors as diverse as corruption and digital infrastructure and has become a vital resource since its inception in 2004.

Looking at African economies, what the findings show is that consistent growth does not equal competitiveness. Some countries are still behind when it comes to education and health, and that is reflected in their overall scores. However there have been some positive stories this year, most notably Cote d'Ivoire jumping 24 places in the global rankings.
