Libya GDP Annual Growth Rate

Libya has one of the highest GDP per capita in Africa. Libya’s territory (90 percent of which is a desert) has the largest oil reserves in Africa and one of the largest in the world. As a result, Libya’s economy is highly dependent on oil production which accounts for 94 percent of government revenues. In 2011, as part of the Arab Spring, Libya went through a civil war that ousted the dictatorial regime. During the conflict oil production was disrupted which resulted in a GDP contraction of over 40 percent. Yet, it is expected that with the recovery of oil industry, the high rates of growth will be back.
