Madagascar

Madagascar Economic Outlook

  • Madagascar’s growth was only 3% in 2014 but should pick up in 2015 and 2016 as governance and business climate reforms take effect, alongside buoyant extractive industries, agriculture and tourism.
  • The political situation has stabilised after presidential and legislative elections, and a national development plan has been launched.
  • Tensions due to spatial disparities are a challenge for government policies on regional development, land use and decentralisation.
