Algeria Economic Outlook

Real GDP growth fell from 3.3% in 2016 to an estimated 2.5% in 2017. The decline is attributable to lower public investment due to declining government resources, despite stable growth in oil and gas since 2015. Projected growth for 2018 (3.5%) and 2019 (3.8%) suggests a return to levels comparable to those prior to 2017, due in part to fiscal consolidation, external rebalancing, continued recovery in oil and gas, and higher public spending. Inflation reached an estimated 5.3% in 2017 and is projected to fall to 4.5% in 2018 and 4% in 2019.
