Gabon Economic Outlook

  • The economy grew 5.1% in 2014 but lower oil prices will reduce tax revenue in 2015.
  • Treasury problems have led to a major build-up of domestic payment arrears since 2013 that is now being resolved, while unprecedented strikes have affected the civil service and the oil and gas sector.
  • The country’s strategic plan for an emerging Gabon (PSGE) aims for an economic relaunch by 2025 by creating ten development centres to use the comparative advantages of the various national spaces.
