- Despite the ongoing debt crisis in the euro area, the Comorian economy grew by an estimated 2.7% in 2012, up from 2.6% in 2011.
- Given the lack of any significant growth in exports, domestic demand will continue to be the main driver of growth, which is forecast to reach 3.2% in 2013 and 3.8% in 2014, albeit with an expected deterioration of the currentaccount deficit.
- Natural resources are the source of major potential for the Comorian economy, but because there has been no structural change, the resources are not sufficiently exploited to make any real contribution to growth.
