- Economic growth speeded up in 2012 with a revival in port activity and greater foreign direct investment.
- The IMF’s extended credit facility ended in May 2012 with an overall satisfactory performance, though maintaining budgetary discipline is a challenge for the government.
- Djibouti has few natural resources and most are undeveloped. Growth revived in 2012 to reach 4.5%, driven by the economy’s two main elements, port activity and foreign direct investment (FDI). The port was boosted by a higher volume of transit goods, but this was still below the level previous to the 2008 world financial crisis. Increased FDI was mostly for salt mining at Lake Assal and building the Chabelley airport complex.
