Comoros Economic Outlook

  • The return of political and institutional stability in the Comoros has allowed economic growth to resume, averaging 3% a year between 2011 and 2013. The outlook for 2014 is positive, but the employment situation is not expected to improve, especially among new graduates.
  • Control of public expenditure has enabled the Comoros to conclude the sixth and final review of the IMF’s Extended Credit Facility (ECF), approved on 13 December 2013.
  • Despite the structural deficit in the current account balance, the country still has a comfortable external position, with more than seven months of import reserves, mainly thanks to remittances from emigrants (USD 147 million in 2012, or 23% of GDP).
