- Third largest producer of gold in Africa, Mali is of considerable potential in agriculture and mining. Iron and bauxite industries are still untapped and there is a real potential for development of the building materials industry (limestone, marble and granite).
- Between 2016-2017, the Malian economy experienced an average annual growth of 5.6% compared with 5.2% over the period 2010-2015 thanks to the improved political climate notwithstanding insecurities in the North, and significant investments in infrastructure.
- In the medium term, the growth of Mali should remain steady, around 5% driven by agriculture, telecommunications, transport and investments with the entry into force of the law on public-private partnerships and the operationalization of the Sustainable Development Fund for regional projects, particularly in the North of the country.
- In spite of the increase in investment, the ongoing budgetary consolidation efforts should bring the budget deficit below 3% of GDP in 2019, against 2.9 percent in 2017.
- Mali is a country with great agro-pastoral and tourism potential.
