- Economic growth slowed to around 3% in 2014, and only a marginal improvementis expected for 2015 and 2016, with persistent de-industrialisation and a growing informal economy.
- There is a need to continue implementation of structural reforms to improve the business environment, achieve a sustainable current account balance, reform public enterprises and make growth more inclusive.
- Various initiatives have been taken to improve spatial inclusion, but progress has been limited by slow implementation of the related policies and strategies.
