Central African Republic

Central African Republic Economic Outlook

  • The timid economic recovery in 2014 should continue in 2015 and 2016 thanks to an improvement in security and the holding of presidential and parliamentary elections in 2015.
  • The mobilisation of the international community that followed the election of Catherine Samba-Panza as interim head of state in January 2014 resulted in the deployment of United Nations security forces and the resumption of external financial support.
  • Despite relative improvement in Bangui and elsewhere, social and humanitarian conditions remain affected by persistent insecurity and the large numbers of displaced people.
