- Seychelles’ GDP grew by about 2.8% in 2012, less than the previous year’s 5%. As a result of rising international food and oil prices, the rupee fell in value, causing inflation. Tourism revenues fell due to the continued financial crisis in Europe (the main tourist market). GDP is expected to rise slightly to 3.2% in 2013 and 4.3% in 2014.
- Government economic policy has been consistent since the adoption of comprehensive reforms in 2009. The government maintained a fiscal policy in line with its objectives of reducing public debt and aims to attain primary fiscal surpluses of 6.7% of GDP in 2012 (above the budget target of 4.7%).
