    Guinea Bissau African Economic Outlook 2017

    Projected real GDP growth of about 5% in 2017 and 2018 is expected to strengthen the posttransition recovery but political uncertainty remains an obstacle to a tangible economic take-off. Economic and social prospects remain fragile because they depend strongly on the cashew sector, on the continuity of reforms undertaken and on the political environment.

    Guinea African Economic Outlook 2017

    In 2016, growth bounced back to 4.9% thanks to political appeasement and good performance in mining and agriculture after two years of weak growth (1.1% in 2014 and 0.1% in 2015) mainly due to the Ebola epidemic. Social cohesion and reducing inequalities have remained pressing challenges in a context of endemic poverty, which is worse in rural areas.

The outlook depends on the ability of the new administration to carry out a smooth and fast transition in order to make needed reforms and set the basis for structural transformation.

    Gabon African Economic Outlook 2017

    Real GDP growth declined to 2.9% in 2016 from 4% the previous year, mainly due to the lower price of oil. Economic diversification should take account of high unemployment levels, notably among youth (46% of those under 25 are jobless), and a 34.3% poverty rate.

    Eritrea African Economic Outlook 2017

    Real GDP growth slowed down to 3.8% in 2016 from 4.8% in 2015, reflecting challenges in the business and investment environment and capacity gaps in government institutions. The government’s decision to access supplemental-support resources from the AfDB’s Transition Support Facility to scale up investments in agriculture should strengthen resilience and improve livelihoods for the majority of the rural population.
