Equatorial Guinea

Equatorial Guinea Economic Outlook

  • In 2014, Equatorial Guinea failed to recover from the 2013 recession caused by cheaper oil prices and lower oil and gas production.
  • To maintain its budgetary balance, the country had to draw on the reserves it had stowed away in offshore banks and in the Bank of Central African States (BEAC).
  • Equatorial Guinea’s spatial-development policy is geared towards exploiting the economic complementarities of a dispersed territory.
