Summary:

Despite continued headwinds, the Comorian economy’s performance slightly improved in 2017. Growth increased to 2.7 percent in 2017 thanks to amongst other factors an improved electricity supply relative to 2016 and favorable external sector developments (exports and remittances). This was despite a persistent deterioration of the business climate and isolated financial sector tensions. A strong reform commitment and deeper engagement with the donor community will be needed to ensure that the authorities’ detailed strategic development plan (SCA2D) is underpinned by sustainable financing sources and will meet its inclusive growth objectives.
