Abstract:

� Business Monitor International Ltd Page - will see the country outperform compared with its Central African peers. However, we stress that government targets of transforming the country into a major economic centre by ---- remain unreasonably optimistic. ...We forecast total external debt rising to --.- of GDP in ----, from an estimated -- in ----, and to continue increasing over the medium term.

We hold a positive consumer outlook on the back of low inflation, rising household spending and a basic foods products subsidy. Gabon s mass grocery retail sector will remain largely underdeveloped over our forecast period, and informal markets will continue to dominate food retail sales.
