- In 2011 Cape Verde suffered from the financial crisis in the euro area. Economic growth slowed from 5.4% in 2010 to 5.0% in 2011. It is expected to stabilise around 5.1% in 2012 and 2013.
- The country has performed in an exemplary manner in terms of public sector governance. Substantive reforms have reduced corruption and improved the quality of business transactions, but weaknesses in infrastructure impose increasing constraints on sustainable economic growth.
- Cape Verde is one of a handful of countries in Africa likely to attain all eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), including that of reducing poverty by a half between 1995 and 2015. Its social protection system covers old age, disability and death. However, the country faces a relatively high unemployment rate, particularly among the young.
