February 2011
Emerging Markets Monitor;2/7/2011, Vol. 16 Issue 42, p21
Country Report
The article reports on the further losses made by Sub-Saharan African eurobonds on January 31, 2011 amid the protests that erupted in Tunisia during the month. It reports that riots in North Africa may likely prompted investors to re-examine the region's stability for most of 2010, although there may be other reasons for the sell-off of the eurobonds. Analysts also argued that political unrest was providing investors with a suitable pretext to exit their positions as in the case of Gabon.
