Summary:

Economic activity continued to expand but growth was uneven. In 2016, subdued agricultural commodity prices, adverse weather conditions and delays in public investment led to a contraction in non-mining sectors. Nevertheless, GDP increased by 3.3 percent buoyed by very large increases in gold output. Increased exports of gold and improved terms of trade helped the current account achieve a surplus of 0.4 percent of GDP from a 5.7 percent deficit in 2015. Guyana is expected to become an oil producer by mid-2020.
