Sao Tome and Principe GDP Annual Growth Rate

Sao Tome and Principe is the least populated and one of the smallest countries in Africa. The country’s economy is dependent on agriculture and tourism. In recent years, the major source of revenue, cocoa production, has been decreasing due to regular droughts and mismanagement. As a result, Sao Tome and Principe has become increasingly dependent on foreign aid and vulnerable to fuel and food price fluctuations. To make things worse, a political crisis is a threat to social stability and may hamper foreign direct investment. On the positive side, recently found oil reserves in the Gulf of Guinea are expected to boost Sao Tome’s economy as soon as production begins.
