The president, José Eduardo dos Santos, will step down in 2017. However, he is likely to seek to retain influence, via family members, and the direction of political and economic policy is set to remain broadly unchanged.

Amid muted international oil prices, we expect Angola's fiscal deficit to remain wide. However, it will moderate from 5.9% of GDP in 2017 to 4.4% of GDP in 2021 as spending pressure eases gradually following the 2017 election.

Given only minor efforts to diversify the economy, real GDP growth will continue to be driven largely by trends in the hydrocarbons sector. We expect growth to average just 2.8% in 2017-21, compared with 4.1% in 2012-16.
