Botswana (Country report) (Engelstalig)

Botswana’s economy is recovering from the global crisis that especially hit its export sector. In 2011, the economy is expected to grow by 6%, from 7.2% in 2010. In addition, the current account deficit will shrink to 0.1% of GDP in 2011 (from 2.4% of GDP in 2010), signalling an increase in external demand for Botswana’s diamond exports.


Singapore (Country report) (Engelstalig)

Singapore has very healthy public finances, strong net-creditor position, solid economic fundamentals, and a stable political environment. Having said that, the large size of the country’s banking sector combined with a huge dependence on global demand makes Singapore’s economy particularly vulnerable to external shocks.


South Africa (Country report) (Engelstalig)

South Africa’s economy recovered, after a year-long recession in 2009. In 2010, the economy grew by 2.8%. Growth was largely demand driven, with an increase in both external and domestic demand fuelling growth in, among others, the manufacturing sector.

Vietnam (Country report) (Engelstalig)

Vietnam’s pro-growth policies will result in economic growth of around 6% year on year (yoy) in 2011, but at the expense of macro-economic stability. External imbalances are very high, as the current account posts large deficits and the country’s liquidity position is in a dismal state.
