North Africa Economic Outlook 2018
This <em>North Africa Economic Outlook </em>(covering Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, and Tunisia) examines the macroeconomic performance of the region and the outlook for 2018 and 2019 and explores the relationship between food security and rural poverty. Part I looks at the key drivers of regional GDP growth and its sectoral decomposition, price movements, scal and current account balance, domestic resource mobilization, and debt dynamics. It also identi es common structural issues facing North African countries and analyzes trends in poverty and inequality and how they relate to unemployment and growth. Part II explores food security and rural poverty in North Africa, viewing them as interlinked. It proposes a strategy to enhance food security while reducing rural poverty and rural–urban inequality by increasing farmers’ share of value added. The North Africa region has recovered strongly since the Arab Spring in 2010. Indeed, real GDP growth was estimated at 4.9 percent, up from 3.3 percent in 2016, higher than the African average of 3.6 percent and second only to East Africa. But this improved performance stems largely from the greater than expected production and export of oil by Libya, which generated strong GDP growth of 55.1 percent, thanks to an improved security situation resulting from a joint regional and international assistance effort to the country. Growth prospects for 2018 and 2019 are positive given reforms undertaken in all countries. The growth outlook for the region remains favorable relative to that for other regions (except East Africa) with an average growth projected at 5.0 percent in 2018 and 4.6 percent in 2019.Read more
