Nigeria Economic Update (Issue 16)

Recently
released World Economic Outlook by the International Monetary Fund (IMF)
projects economic activities to increase significantly in developing countries-
especially Nigeria. Annual real output is expected to grow by 0.8 percent in
2017 from the contraction of 1.5 percent in 20161. Improvement in
economic activities is hinged on prospective favorable effects of continued
increase in commodity export price (Crude oil is expected to increase to $55
per barrel in 2017 compared to $46 in 2016).
