Palestine GDP Annual Growth Rate

GDP Annual Growth Rate in Palestine is reported by the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics.

The Palestinian territories (West Bank and Gaza) have been occupied by Israel since the Six-Day war in 1967. As such, Palestinian economy is dependent on Israel as it controls the movement of goods and labour and retains customs revenues. As a result, production capacity and access to natural resources has been significantly reduced and services are by far the most important sector of the economy (nearly 83 percent of GDP). Palestine remains heavily dependent on foreign aid to support the government’s budget and fund infrastructure development. Nonetheless, in recent months, Palestinian National Authority's efforts to ease tensions with Israel have resulted in growth returning to Palestine. Yet, the growth cannot be sustainable without addressing security problems and high unemployment rate among young people.

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.
