Highlights

  • Fourth largest producer of uranium, Niger is the only net exporter of oil products within WAEMU.
  • Between 2016 and 2017, Niger recorded a growth in GDP of 4.9%, driven by mining and agriculture. It benefits from important investment efforts in agriculture and infrastructure (Kandadji dam, factory cement of Kao, thermal energy of Gorou Banda, roads, flyovers, etc.).
  • Due to challenges relating to insecurity in its Western and southern borders and the negative effects of climate change, Niger has been taking an active part in regional and international initiatives in these areas.
  • The Niger Government has an ambitious economic and social development Plan (SEOP) 2017-2021 to promote sustained and inclusive growth. SEOP has five (5) areas of focus which are: cultural renaissance, social development and demographic transition, the acceleration of economic growth, the improvement of governance, peace and security and, finally, sustainable management of environment.
  • Efforts on public investment and fighting insecurity have contributed in steadying the budget deficits (5.1% of GDP) and current (15.9% of GDP) to a high level in 2017, although down compared to previous years.
  • Debt rate expected at 46.2% of GDP in 2018, remains well below community ceiling set at 70%.
