Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/18/2014 -- We have downgraded our five- year growth outlook for Angola's construction sector by about four percentage points to reflect the impact of capacity constraints on government spending. High growth expectations from major investment plans under the control of the government, including the USD55bn FY2014 budget and the 2013-2017 National Development Plan, have as such been eroded partially by concerns over budgetary execution. However, we maintain a broadly positive outlook for the industry, with growth to peak over the five year horizon (2014-2018), averaging 9.3% y-o-y.

Angola's construction industry is expected to be boosted by a combination of government investment, as part of a drive to develop infrastructure to support economic diversification and a strong expansion in oil production and therefore revenue. We do, however, remain concerned over budget execution levels, which, given the sheer level of government investment supporting our growth outlook, have seen activity underperform in 2013, and we expect this to continue. In the energy sector, a new USD1bn agreement with the African Development Bank is targeting operational efficiencies and sustainable investment, and this should help to ease the bottleneck in that industry.

Against this backdrop, continued investment from China, Brazil and Portugal will be crucial to support infrastructure projects. The former two in particular have provided significant levels of funding to support investments through state-owned development banks - with Brazil announcing USD2bn in loans for the Lauca hydropower project in April 2014. With oil exports to the US falling, China will become an increasingly crucial partner for Angola in order to maintain strong oil revenue as production continues to grow domestically.

Key elements driving our positive forecast:

- The FY2014 budget outlines spending of USD55bn, of which a third will be targeted towards infrastructure and social projects - such as healthcare,...
