Namibia

Namibia Economic Outlook

  • 2014 growth accelerated to 5.3% and should remain strong in coming years as new mines start production and exports grow.
  • Political stability and prudent fiscal management have made Namibia attractive for investment but it must boost quality of education and training to improve skills and enhance competitiveness.
  • Namibia must deepen reforms to get better value from agriculture and extend nonmineral diversification to create jobs and reinforce spatial inclusion.
