Angola is projected to emerge from recession with real GDP growth of 1.2% in 2019 and 3.2% in 2020. The recovery will be driven mainly by the production and export of diamonds (growing by 8.2%), agriculture (5%), and construction (2.1%). Changing to a floating exchange regime in 2019 could eventually eliminate the gap between the official and parallel market exchange rates. A 14% value added tax to be introduced in July 2019 will also mobilise domestic resources.
