Cameroon Economic Outlook

The regional, economic, and financial environment has remained fragile and challenging, despite fiscal consolidation by Central African Economic and Monetary Community (CEMAC) countries, rising oil prices, and restrictive monetary policy in CEMAC, which led to improved economic performance in 2018. Real GDP growth reached an estimated 3.8% in 2018, up from 3.5% in 2017. Domestic demand (consumption and investment) was the mainstay of economic growth. The fiscal deficit continued to fall to an estimated 2.6% of GDP in 2018 from 4.9% in 2017 and 6.2% in 2016.
