Angola Weekly

Dear subscriber [name],

Here is this last week’s Angola Weekly.



  •  According to BNA data, the current account showed a surplus of USD 5.1 billion (Bn) in 2019, down from USD 7.4 Bn recorded in the previous year;

  •  The surplus is higher than we expected, a result of upward revisions of previous quarterly balances, and the absence of capital imports above normal in the last quarter of the year;

  • According to the Angolan central bank, Net International Reserves amounted to USD 10.9Bn in March, practically unchanged from February;

  • According to preliminary data from the Ministry of Finance, in 2019, the Angolan State again posted a budget surplus, around AOA 0.6 trillion, about 1.8% of GDP;

  • In 2020, the fall in oil prices will again put the accounts in the red: the Budget predicted a surplus of around 1.2% of GDP, but the impact of the crisis could cause a budget deficit between 4-5% of GDP;

  •  In the international markets, there was a historic drop in the price of WTI, which reached USD -37.
