BMI View: Angola's mining sector growth will continue to be driven by the country's diamond sector. We expect diamond mining growth will be supported with continued investment, both domestic and international, over our forecast period. Although the Angolan government keen to diversify the economy away from oil, mining expansion will be constrained by both inadequate infrastructure and high levels of bureaucracy.

We expect Angola's mining sector to expand at a steady pace through to 2019, reaching USD7.7bn in terms of overall output in 2019. Nevertheless, mining will remain far from a core industry sector in terms of the wider Angolan economy, barely contributing 4.0% of GDP and less than 10% of the country's oil revenues in 2019. For the medium term at least, the expansion of the industry will find itself constrained by a number of factors, ranging from a lack of supportive infrastructure and a challenging investment climate typified by high levels of corruption and red tape. As such, it is likely to be some time before the country begins to attract some of the larger global diamond miners, including De Beers, a company which, tellingly, already operates in neighbouring Botswana, Namibia and South Africa.
