Economic Structure

The Republic of Djibouti, a coastal country located in the Horn of Africa enjoys a privileged geographical position between Africa, Asia and Europe. Since its independence, the country has political stability and social peace. 

For a decade the country has a positive and sustained growth with a GDP of 6% in 2014. This dynamic should be maintained in the coming years, thanks to the continuation of a major program of investment, particularly in infrastructures. The objective of this investment is to turn the country into a regional platform of commercial services, logistics and financial. This extensive infrastructure program is also the result of increasing ports activities. The inflation rate is under control and remains around 3% for this last three years.
