Lesotho GDP Annual Growth Rate Notes

Lesotho is a landlocked country inside South Africa. Lesotho’s economy is dependent on diamonds extraction, exports of water to South Africa and workers remittances from the Southern African Customs Union (SACU). The agricultural sector, which accounts for only 8.6 percent of GDP, is the main source of income for the majority of rural population. Yet, in recent years, increasing foreign direct investments (mainly from China) in textile industry and commerce have created more jobs and strengthen the economy. However, widespread poverty, youth unemployment and high prevalence rate of AIDS remain the main obstacles to growth.
