Equatorial Guinea

Equatorial Guinea Economic Outlook

  • With a rate of 5.5% in 2012 and a forecast of 4.9% for 2013, GDP growth is slowing down, a disappointing performance mainly due to a sluggish oil sector and a lower contribution from construction and services.
  • The balanced budget achieved in 2012 shows considerable improvement in the management of public resources, but it is at risk from the high level of public investments currently underway.
  • High cash inflows from oil have brought about deep structural changes in Equatorial Guinea in the past twenty years, especially in construction and basic infrastructure development, but human development and job creation have fallen short of the country’s financial and economic potential.
