The president, José Eduardo dos Santos, has stated that he will step down in 2018. If he does so (and he has changed his mind before), he is likely to seek to retain influence, via family members.

The government has revised the 2016 budget, with total spending revised up. With revenue likely to remain relatively weak, we expect Angola to run a fiscal deficit averaging 4.6% of GDP over the forecast period.

Given only minor efforts to diversify the economy, real GDP growth will continue to be largely driven by trends in the hydrocarbons sector. We expect growth to average just 2.5% in 2016-20, compared with 4.7% in 2011-15.
