"Angola Infrastructure Report Q2 2016" Published

The Angolan government will struggle to devote significant financial attention to its key inf rastructure projects over 2016 given the wide fiscal deficit and decreased revenues owing to low oil prices. We expect a substantial uptick in growth for the construction sector from 2020 onwards as the country's fiscal position improves , though note the government will need to address pervasive corruption and ease labour market restrictions to attract necessary private investment.

Latest Updates And Structural Trends

We are maintaining our forecast of 2.5% real growth in 2016 as the fiscal budget remains in the red owing to low oil prices, thereby diverting funds away from infrastructure development.

The second half of our forecast period (2021-2025) will see the highest growth, averaging 6.7% in real terms. This is a result of investment flows into infrastructure to support the oil industry, in line with the expected recovery in Brent Crude oil prices.

The USD5.2bn credit line granted by the Chinese government in 2015 will provide support for projects in the utilities and residential sectors and into industrial and commercial construction.

Risk/Reward Index

Angola comes in 14 th out of 16 markets in our Sub-Saharan Africa RRI, with the score of 30.9, well below the regional average of 42.6.

Pervasive corruption, high taxes and strict labour regulations are key deterrents to entering the market.

Untapped oil reserves have the potential to boost industry growth, though we forecast this to impact our forecasts only from 2020, in line with improved oil prices.
