Summary:

This 2013 Article IV Consultation highlights that Namibia’s real GDP grew by a healthy 5 percent in 2012. Preliminary data for the first half of 2013 suggest that growth has moderated; the slowdown reflects weak global demand for exports, which more than offset the solid growth in the non-mineral sector, most notably in retail trade. At end-October 2013, inflation stood slightly below 5 percent. The IMF Staff projects that output growth would further moderate to about 4 percent in 2013. Mineral exports will likely remain subdued on account of weak external demand with growth slowing in Namibia’s major trading partners.
