Guinea-Bissau

Guinea-Bissau Economic Outlook

  • The economy shrank by an estimated 1.5% in 2012 (after expanding by 5.3% in 2011) due to lower production and world prices of cashew nuts and problems after the April 2012 coup d’état. Growth is expected to be 4.2% in 2013 and 3.5% in 2014.

Guinea-Bissau and the AfDB
