Banking & Financial Services

Banking growth is expected to be subdued due to the fall in oil prices, though new developments such as the introduction of mobile money services and increased inter-bank cooperation have served the sector in good stead over the long run. Insurance, meanwhile, grew by 3.3% in 2014, mainly due to the uptick in industry and infrastructure activity.

This chapter includes interviews with Edgar Théophile Anon, Managing Director, BGFIBank Gabon; and Bernard Bartoszek, Former President, Federation of Gabonese Insurance Companies.
