Angola - Quarterly Economic Review - N° 1 November 2012

Angola is emerging from more than 27 years of war to become Africa’s second largest oil exporter and its third largest economy. Since 2003, the country began to rebuild its infrastructure, the oil and non-oil sectors grew substantially, and per capita gross domestic product (GDP) reached middle-income levels. Despite this progress, the economy remains highly vulnerable to oil revenue volatility and there are still several constraints to private sector development as evidenced by the low standing (172 out of 185 countries) in the World Bank’s 2013 Doing Business Report.

Angola - Quarterly Economic Review - N° 2 February 2013

The Angolan economy rebounded strongly after several years of low growth attributed to the lingering effects of the global financial crisis. Real gross domestic product (GDP) grew at an estimated rate of 8 percent (up from 3.9 percent in 2011) on account of strong performance of energy, transportation and construction sectors. Year-on-year inflation declined from 11.4 percent in 2011 to 9.02 percent in December, 2012, helped by a stable exchange rate and fuel price subsidies, and reached unprecedented single-digit values for the first time in a decade.

Egypt Economic Quarterly Review - Volume 3 - April 2013

Economic Growth Egypt’s real gross domestic product (GDP) contracted sharply in Q1 of 2012/13 fiscal year, to 2.6%, year-onyear (y/y), after spiking above 5% in Q3 2011/12. Nominal GDP growth rose to Egyptian pound (EGP) 445.8 billion (bn) in Q1 2012/13, against EGP 402.1 bn in Q1 2011/12, sustained by strong private consumption. Although the speed and trajectory of the recovery remain weak and uncertain, the recent gains are a sharp contrast to the contraction in growth rate to -3.8% in Q3 2011, after the January 2011 revolution.

Egypt Economic Quarterly Review - Volume 1 - June 2012

Economic Growth Egypt’s economy continues to recover from the adverse shocks of the January 2011 revolution, but the speed and trajectory of the recovery is weak and uneven. Historically, from 2006 until 2010 Egypt’s average annual GDP was about 6% (Chart 1). Real GDP growth (at 2006/2007, JulyJune, market prices) improved to 0.4% by the end of the second quarter of 2011/2012 (October-December) from a growth rate of 0.2% in the previous quarter, and after a weak third quarter of 2010/2011 when the economy contracted by 4.3%. Despite the positive signs, recent data released by the Egypt’s...

Egypt Economic Quarterly Review - Volume 2 - October 2012

Economic Growth Egypt’s real growth domestic product (GDP) at 2006/2007 (July-June) constant market prices picked up to 5.2% during the quarter ending 31 March 2012, bringing real GDP for the fiscal year 2011/12 to 2.2% (Chart 1). This outcome, close to the 2.3% growth achieved during the previous fiscal year, provides evidence of resilience in economic activity. This is crucial given that the real GDP for the first half of 2011/12 fiscal year was only 0.3%. This stronger performance that is an improvement over the 1.8% growth in 2010/11 is due to favorable base effects falls short of...

Structured Finance - Conditions for Infrastructure Project Bonds in African Markets

Investment in infrastructure is vital for sustained economic growth in Africa. Energy, transport, water and information technology services remain well below international standard on the continent, and this creates serious bottlenecks for African economies trying to achieve the transformational rates of growth that have been witnessed in other emerging markets. The need is particularly stark in the light of rising populations, and rapid urbanization.

Zimbabwe - Monthly Economic Review - March 2013

The prices of gold and platinum declined during the month of February. Gold, which had closed January 2013 at USD 1,670 per ounce, declined and closed February at USD 1,590 per ounce, while platinum declined to USD 1,597 per ounce after closing in January 2013 at USD 1,676 (Table 1). The Federal Open Market Committee’s pledge to maintain low interest rates until mid-2015 and the depreciation of the major currencies against the United States dollar (USD) – particularly the euro, Australian dollar and the yen – were the main drivers of the decline in precious metal prices. The depreciation of...

Southern Africa Quarterly Review and Analysis - 4th Quarter 2012 - Issue 7

Economic activity in Southern Africa picked up in the fourth quarter to propel the region’s average real gross domestic product (GDP) growth rate to an estimated 4.0 percent for 2012. Production recovery in crude oil underpinned higher growth in Angola. Lesotho experienced positive growth driven by the industrial sector, particularly the textile and clothing sub-sectors. In Mauritius, growth was resilient in spite of the continued recession in the Eurozone, which had weakened the external sector of the country.
