East Africa Economic Outlook 2022

The African Development Bank’s East Africa Regional Economic Outlook 2022 reviews the economic performance of 13 East African countries over the past year with short- to medium-term projections. The countries are Burundi, Comoros, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Seychelles, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda. Overall, East Africa recorded a robust economic recovery in 2021, but most countries are yet to achieve their pre-Covid growth levels. The report projects that the region’s GDP growth will moderate at 4% in 2022 before recovering to 4.7% in 2023, buoyed by the reopening of the economies.
