re reluctant to answer their calls for excluding Huawei from their 5G networks, Ren had an answer: “For every base station

site, Huawei can save the Europeans 10,000 euros ($11,192). Instead of following the US, they have communicated with us closely”.

Faced with deep-rooted structural weakness, several large

eral large developing countries are struggling to recover from recessions or remain trapped on a low growth path.

The report highlights that per capita income growth in several parts of Africa, western Asia, L

atin America and the Caribbean is expected to remain very weak in the outlook period. That poses ad

ditional challenges for the Sustainable Development Goals, including the goal to universally eradicate poverty by 2030.

The report further notes that while poverty remains predominantly

rural, further progress on poverty-reduction also hinges on the effective management of o

ngoing urbanization. That is particularly relevant for Africa and South Asia, the two regions with the highest num

ber of people in poverty, which are expected to experience the most rapid pace of urbanization in the next two decades.
