Djibouti Economic Outlook

  • Economic growth in 2013 continued the acceleration begun in 2012, driven by a huge investment programme and port activity.
  • Budgetary discipline and debt management were major challenges in the absence of a new IMF programme to tackle them.
  • The government needs to broaden growth to reduce the poverty that has greatly worsened over the past decade.
