    Comoros African Economic Outlook 2017

    Economic growth was 2.1% in 2016 due to the ongoing electricity crisis, but thanks to the new government’s efforts to resolve and clean up public finances, growth is projected to reach 3.4% in 2017 and 4.1% in 2018. The 2016 elections led to political change: the new President of the Union and the three island governors were all elected from the opposition.

    Chad African Economic Outlook 2017

    The costs involved in combatting jihadi movements and the continuing low world price of oil mean that economic growth, which was already negative in 2016, will again be so in 2017. The economic, financial and security environments are particularly difficult, and the extension of structural reforms seems essential if macroeconomic stability is to be maintained in 2017.

    Central African Republic African Economic Outlook 2017

    Despite a downward revision, real GDP in 2016 was estimated to have increased by 5.1%, buoyed by recovery in extractive industries. The country is experiencing a degree of macroeconomic stability and taking measures to implement structural reforms, but the authorities still do not have control of the entire territory and people still fall victim to violence.

    Cameroon African Economic Outlook 2017

    Growth stood at 4.7% in 2016, down 1 percentage point from 2015 due to a decline in the secondary sector, especially the extractive industries. A policy further diversifying the economy’s primary sector and rationalising infrastructure investment has mitigated budgetary and current-account imbalances.

    Burundi African Economic Outlook 2017

    After a recession in 2015 that saw GDP contract by 3.9%, economic growth resumed in Burundi in 2016, but too slowly (0.9%) to improve the living conditions of the population. The socio-political crisis related expenditure led to a widening of the fiscal deficit to 6.7% of GDP in 2016 and caused excessive reliance on domestic debt, while a freeze on aid by international donors is affecting social expenditure.
