Chad Economic Outlook

  • Economic growth reached an estimated 4.1% in 2015, possibly falling to only 2.6% in 2016 due to the collapse in oil prices and a steep fall in export revenues.
  • The need to maintain internal and external balances in 2016 makes budgetary consolidation indispensable in the face of numerous financial, social, security and humanitarian challenges.
  • Among other things, work towards structural transformation of the economy is driven by an integrated development strategy in the urban centres, especially through planning, promoting decent housing and equitable access to social services.
