Sudan Economic Outlook

  • Driven by agriculture and the extractive industries, GDP growth (3.4% in 2014) is projected at 3.1% in 2015 and 3.7% in 2016, with inflation anticipated to remain high (21.8% in 2015).
  • National dialogue between government and opposition should lead to political reform, while implementing the Interim Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper should support inclusive growth and improve MDG achievement prospects.
  • Geographic concentration has hindered business clustering and employment in lagging states, and specific spatial planning is needed to concentrate resources in urban agglomerations and stimulate employment in agriculture.
