BUILDING A RESILIENT ECONOMY

Angola’s economy is gathering momentum. GDP growth since 2002 has been faster than almost any other country. It has single-digit inflation, a large trade surplus and a developing financial sector.

But the country is still heavily reliant on oil revenues. Crude oil accounts for almost all exports and well over half of GDP. This leaves it vulnerable to external shocks.

DT Group is working with the Angolan Government on projects that diversify its economy to create a more robust platform for growth. Agriculture pilot projects and mining exploration programmes are sowing seeds for the future.
