Central African Republic Economic Outlook

  • A rebel uprising led to the overthrow in March 2013 of Central African Republic’s president and conflict in which thousands have died.
  • Despite an international military operation, there is a huge humanitarian crisis, state institutions have collapsed and the economy has come to a standstill.
  • The transitional government has virtually no revenue sources and the country faces an uncertain future.
