Economy

Gabon has seen stable growth over the past five years, aided in part by a government drive to promote diversification in line with its Emerging Gabon Strategic Plan. However, its continued dependence on oil has left the country vulnerable to external shocks, and the low-price environment of 2014 and 2015 will likely cause complications for the next two to three years, as the authorities grapple with lower budgets and greater debt challenges.

This chapter includes interviews with Régis Immongault, Minister of Economy; Madeleine Berre, President, Gabonese Employers’ Confederation, and Partner & General Manager, Deloitte Legal and Tax; and Nina Abouna, Director-General, National Investment Promotion Agency (ANPI).
