Most Angolans give the government poor marks on economic management, Afrobarometer survey shows

Macroeconomics and markets

A large majority of Angolans say the government is doing a poor job on unemployment, improving living standards of the poor, and other economic issues, according to the most recent Afrobarometer survey. More than three-quarters of Angolans give the government bad marks on maintaining price stability, and almost as many are critical of its overall economic management. Residents of Luanda and Cabinda are particularly critical of the government’s economic performance. Citizens’ assessments of the government’s economic performance highlight the challenges Angola faces in achieving United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) No. 8 (“Decent work and economic growth”) and No. 10 (“Reducing inequalities”).
