Sub Saharan Africa Economic Forecast

Economic Snapshot for Sub-Saharan Africa

December 16, 2021

Regional economy to ease in 2022

Economic growth in the region is expected to ease next year due to a less favorable base effect. Domestic demand should nonetheless strengthen amid softer restrictions; however, the balance of risks is tilted to the downside. The emergence of new Covid-19 strains, low vaccination rates and currency weakness amid debt repayments cloud the outlook.

Inflation to moderate in 2022

Regional inflation came in at 12.1% in October, down from September’s 12.3%. Looking ahead, inflationary pressures should ease in 2022 amid normalizing economic conditions and the fading impact of supply bottlenecks later in the year. However, exchange rate pressures and instability pose upside risks to the outlook.
