Rapid Economic Growth Drives Angola’s Infrastructure Development

This research service tracks infrastructure development in Angola. The research service forms part of the infrastructure tracker studies across the African continent. Angola's infrastructure has endured years of neglect and destruction and is in urgent need of refurbishment. The civil war between 1975 and 2002 had a severe impact on the overall quality of the country's infrastructure. The study establishes some of the infrastructure backlogs in the country, as well as some of the initiatives being undertaken to address these infrastructure backlogs. The research service also provides analysis of the current sources of funding in the country and the expected future trends of infrastructure development in Angola.

Introduction

• It is the second-largest producer of oil in Africa after Nigeria, producing more than X million barrels per day.
• In 2011, Angola’s real gross domestic product (GDP) grew by X per cent, a slight increase from the 2010 level ofX per cent.
• However, Angola remains one of the fastest growing economies in Africa, largely driven by rising oil prices and a strong oil sector.
• Between 1975 and 2005, Angola was involved in a X year civil war that destroyed most of the country’s infrastructure.
• Most of the country’s rural areas are currently inaccessible due to the destruction as a result of war.
