Guinea-Bissau Economic Outlook

Recent macroeconomic and financial developments

Due to inflationary pressures that reduced private spending on the demand side and manufacturing and the primary sector on the supply side, real GDP growth fell to 3.7% in 2022 from 6.4% in 2021. Due to increased costs for imported food and fuels, inflation increased from 3.3% in 2021 to 7.9% in 2022. Due to erratic employment practices, costs associated with impending elections, and temporary steps taken to mitigate the consequences of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the budget deficit increased to 6.3% of GDP in 2022 from 5.6% in 2021. Bond sales and grants and loans were used to cover the deficit. The public debt increased from 78.5% in 2021 to more than 80.0% in 2022, raising the risk of overindebtedness. The current account deficit increased from 0.8% of GDP in 2021 to 5.8% of GDP in 2022 as a result of decreasing cashew exports and higher import commodity costs. Aside from one systemic bank with inadequate capital, the financial sector is sound. In June 2022, the percentage of nonperforming loans decreased from 21.8% in 2020 to 14.6%. The epidemic caused poverty to increase from 63.0% in 2019 to 68.4% in 2021. Higher prices in 2022 had an impact on household quality of life as the majority of household income goes toward food.
