Backed by a rebound of services and dynamic construction sector, real GDP growth in Benin is estimated to have reached 6.6 percent in 2021, in-line with pre-COVID trends. The fiscal deficit deteriorated further as government extended its socioeconomic response into 2021 and maintained capital expenditure levels, putting pressure on PPG debt. Global inflation, regional insecurity spreading through the northern border, and tightening global financial conditions cloud the outlook. This Macro Poverty Outlook presents GDP, debt and fiscal forecasts and examines the implications for critical economic and social concepts such as growth, poverty reduction and macroeconomic stability.
