Gambia Economic Outlook

  • Economic growth contracted from 4.3% in 2013 to an estimated -0.7% in 2014 due to the effects of Ebola on tourism-related activities, the delayed rains experienced in 2014 and continued macroeconomic policy challenges.
  • The fiscal balance continued to deteriorate in 2014 while international reserves were under pressure from the massive injection of liquidity on account of the country’s net domestic borrowing.
  • Local and physical development policies are central in the Gambia’s development agenda but are not fully implemented, resulting in poor service delivery and a significant rural-urban imbalance.
