The Bank of Namibia has released its Economic Outlook Update for February 2022, predicting growth in the domestic economy of 3.4 percent in 2022, and further improvements in 2023. The projected improvement, they say, will be supported by the mining industry and most of the industries in the tertiary sector. Risks to domestic growth remain dominated by the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic along with high prices for energy products such as fuel and gas as well as supply disruptions around the world and breaks in the rainfall pattern that might have a negative impact on agriculture.
