Lusa - Business News - Equatorial Guinea: Recession of 11.3% forecast for 2020 - ADB




Abidjan,July 9,2020(Lusa)-The African Development Bank(ADB) on Thursday aggravated the forecast of a sharp drop in Equatorial Guinea's economy to 11.3% this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, for which the country has no means.
"According to the World Health Organization, Covid-19 represents a high risk for Equatorial Guinea due to the weak capacity of its health system, lack of essential equipment to fight the pandemic, poor hygiene and living conditions, overpopulation in the largest cities and high death rates, which can lead to a worsening of the severity of the disease," reads the ADB's annual report on African economies in the Regional Economic Outlook update.
In the document, the ADB economists stress the recession forecast, which rises from 3.7% in January to 9.2% in the baseline scenario (pandemic lasts until July) and 11.3% in the scenario where the pandemic lasts until the end of the year.
"The fall in oil prices in early 2020, caused by a contraction in global demand and an excess of supply, combined with a general decline in economic activity due to containment, should have a strong negative impact on the country's economy and accentuate the recession of 2020 and 2021", a year in which ADB economists anticipate a further fall in GDP of between 5 and 6.4%.
Equatorial Guinea, the country with the worst health system of the 195 countries analysed in the Global Health Security Index, is expected to have a public accounts deficit of up to 6% of GDP and needs the equivalent of 4.3% of GDP to meet its financing needs to fight the pandemic and revive its economy, concludes the ADB.
