Djibouti Economic Outlook

  • Growth of about 7.4% is forecast for 2016, compared to 6.7% in 2015 and 6% in 2014, an improvement which has not prevented widespread poverty or unemployment.
  • The budgetary deficit improved in 2015, but the country’s level of debt remains critical, with a service economy centred on transport.
  • Activities and jobs are largely concentrated in the capital, which has led the government to contemplate the development of economic hubs in the country’s interior.
