Chad Economic Outlook

  • After a slowdown in 2013, growth picked up in 2014 (7.2%), and this trend could continue in 2015 thanks to the start of production at new oil fields.
  • Chad is highly exposed to oil price fluctuations, so it needs to step up its budgetary consolidation efforts; its main social challenges, meanwhile, are linked to security crises and preparation of the electoral process.
  • Implementation of spatial inclusion and structural transformation policies is essential, if Chad wishes to achieve economic emergence by 2030, in order to better develop its natural resources and meet many socioeconomic challenges.
