The past week has seen a medley of favourable data releases coming out of #Rwanda. GDP growth picked up to 7.7% in Q3 while price inflation remained low at 0.1% in November.
#Mozambique’s consumer price inflation fell further to 4.3% y-o-y in November as transport costs start to trend lower and food prices remain low. This provided the central bank with the necessary scope to lower the MIMO rate by another 75 bps to 14.25%.
#Angola’s inflation rose to 18.4% in November. We still expect broad disinflation next year on average, but at a slower rate compared to 2018 due to upside risks stemming from the exchange rate and fiscal tightening.
#IMF completes fourth review under the ECF and EFF arrangements with #IvoryCoast. Based on Ivory Coast’s good progress on implementing structural reforms and creating an upbeat macroeconomic environment, the Fund promised an immediate disbursement of $137.7m.
#Namibia headline #inflation reaches a 14-month high.
