List of countries by GDP (real) growth rate

List of countries by GDP (real) growth rate

The list of countries of the world sorted by their gross domestic product (real) growth rate shows the increase in value of all final goods and services produced within a nation in a given year -- not taking into account Purchasing power parity and taking into account inflation. It is a measure of economic development.

List

All figures are from the CIA World Factbook unless otherwise specified.

Top ten economies (PPP) are listed in bold. Data are not available for Nauru and Vatican City.

Africa

Africa has seen the fastest growing but also the slowest growing/declining economies in the world. From the oil fields which made Angola the 3rd fastest growing economy, to Zimbabwe the world's fastest shrinking economy . Oil in Africa has created 'wealth spots' where a few countries have exceeded their neighbors in wealth. Out of the world's 10 fastest growing economies : 3 were African. Some countries have in the past been the fastest growing in the world. Equatorial Guinea reached 75% growth in 2004 because of oil reserves.

Declining

Some countries have negative growth, most often due to ongoing wars, political problems or hyperinflation. These countries include Palestinean territories, Zimbabwe, Fiji, Chad and Puerto Rico.
