Mali

Mali Economic Outlook

  • The Malian economy was in recession in 2012, with growth of -1.5%, compared to the initial forecast of +5.6%. It is forecast to rebound to 5.4% in 2013 thanks to the dynamism of the agriculture and gold sectors, plus the resumption of international aid.
  • The poverty rate increased from 41.7% in 2011 to 42.7% in 2012 as a result of the food, political and security crises.
  • While natural resources – in particular gold and cotton – play a vital role in the economy, the textile and gold refining industries need to be developed.
