    Nigeria African Economic Outlook 2017

    In 2016, Nigeria’s economy slipped into recession for the first time in more than two decades reflecting adverse economic shocks, inconsistent economic policies, and deepening security problems in the north east and Delta regions. The outlook for 2017 is for a moderate economic recovery with real GDP projected to grow at 2.2% spurred by increased infrastructure spending and restoration of oil production to previous levels.

    Madagascar African Economic Outlook 2017

    The economy expanded by 4.0% in 2016 with 4.5% predicted for 2017 after five years of sluggish growth. This growth will depend on political stability and enactment of structural reforms.
