Landenrapport

Country Report Ethiopia (Engelstalig)

Ethiopia continues to record robust growth. However, the state-led development model is con-straining the private sector and has resulted, from time to time, in macroeconomic imbalances, and therefore seems unsustainable in the long term.

Landenrapport

Country Report Nigeria (Engelstalig)

After a rebasing exercise, Nigeria became the largest economy of Africa. However, this does not reduce Nigeria’s large structural issues, and instability and violence could worsen ahead of elections in 2015.

Landenrapport

Country Report Egypt (Engelstalig)

A generous financial lifeline from the GCC countries kept the Egyptian economy afloat in 2013 and will do so again in 2014. However, persistent polarisation of the Egyptian society makes the country’s future highly uncertain.

Landenrapport

Country Report South Africa (Engelstalig)

After a highly difficult 2013, in which domestic and global developments exposed South Africa’s vulnerabilities, ANC’s victory in May’s elections should improve policy and economic perspectives.

Landenrapport

Country Report Luxembourg (Engelstalig)

The economy of Luxembourg took a positive turn in 2013 and the already strong fiscal position improved. However, in the longer term, the country needs to deal with challenges such as legislative harmonisation at the EU level and rising ageing costs.

Landenrapport

Country Report Malta (Engelstalig)

Stronger economic growth and improved fiscal balances place Malta in a better position than a year ago, but challenges, such as the structurally high public debt, remain.

Landenrapport

Country Report Tanzania (Engelstalig)

Bright prospects for the energy sector in Tanzania bode well for the already robust economic growth and gave the country access to international debt markets in 2013.

Landenrapport

Country Report Bulgaria (Engelstalig)

In 2013, Bulgaria was plagued by social unrest related to discontent with the high level of corruption amongst politicians. However, the economy benefitted from stronger external demand.

Landenrapport

Country Report Kazakhstan (Engelstalig)

Kazakhstan had a less fortunate economic year in 2013, as weak exports led to a twin deficit and economic growth, though picking up, was driven by unsustainable consumer borrowing.
