- Economic growth rebounded to 5.2% in 2016 from 3.5% in 2015, thanks mainly to agricultural production and growth is projected to remain strong at 5.6% in 2017.
- Terrorism and security threats from neighbouring countries (Mali, Libya and Nigeria), falling world oil and uranium prices, and slower growth in the Nigerian economy continue to have an impact on Niger’s economic situation.
- Entrepreneurship in Niger is mainly informal, while industrialisation remains weak and continues to face several challenges, including problems with electricity supply.
