Guinea Bissau is one of the poorest countries in the world. The export of cashew nuts, which account for over 90 percent of total exports, is the backbone of the country’s economy. The major obstacle to the country’s growth is the unstable social environment caused by successive military coups and the traffic of narcotics. After the death of the president in January of 2012, the military seized power and suspended democracy. As a result, the Economic Community of Central Africa threatened sanctions that can hamper the country’s future.

GDP Annual Growth Rate | Notes
The annual growth rate in Gross Domestic Product measures the increase in value of the goods and services produced by an economy over the period of a year. Therefore, unlike the commonly used quarterly GDP growth rate the annual GDP growth rate takes into account a full year of economic activity, thus avoiding the need to make any type of seasonal adjustment.
