Certain economies have not experienced the positive growth that characterizes many of the nations within the African continent, and as a result they remain unattractive as investment destinations.

Quantum Global Research Lab conducted research to produce the 2017 Africa Investment Index based on a variety of factors such as macroeconomic and financial indicators and the World Bank Group’s Ease of Doing Business Indicators.

A combination of this research then determines the list of African economies that make the least compelling cases for investors.

Here are the 12 least attractive African economies to invest in for 2017.
