Angola Economic Outlook

  • Angola’s GDP grew 5.1% in 2013, below the target figure, but a new burst is expected from 2014.
  • Despite good economic indicators, policies are needed to lift Angolans out of poverty.
  • Investment is needed in skills and infrastructure to improve human development.
