  • IMF predicts modest growth for Angola
    IMF predicts modest growth for Angola The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has predicted a modest growth for Angola's economy this year. IMF, in a statement Tuesday, said Angolan real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth in 2014 would be a moderate 3.9 per cent. According to the World Bank, the economy of Africa’s second biggest oil producer grew by 5.1 per cent in 2013, below the hoped for 7.1 per cent. The IMF statement was issued after its mission visit to the southern African country for two weeks. The mission was led by Mr Ricardo Velloso, the IMF Chief for Angola.

Angola has over the years had one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Real GDP growth has fluctuated since the end of…
