Eritrea Economic Outlook

  • Growth is projected at 0.3% in 2015, from 1.7% in 2014 and 1.3% in 2013, reflecting challenges in the business and investment environment, and a poor global economic environment.
  • The government’s commitment to strengthening public financial management and natural-resource management through the African Development Bank’s technical assistance has helped to create favourable medium-term prospects.
  • Eritrea has been promoting urbanisation but this is limited by financial capacity and a shortage of urban housing.
