Angola Economic Outlook

  • Angola’s economy will suffer from significantly lower oil prices, with GDP growth expected to decelerate to 3.8% in 2015 and 4.2% in 2016, down from the 4.5% registered in 2014.
  • Structural reforms are imperative to enhance efficiency in the allocation of resources and create the conditions for a faster rate of economic growth and equitable development in the future.
  • Improved management of income from non-renewable resources is needed to enhance spatial inclusion and create savings for future generations.
