WAEMU: inflation rises to 8.4% in October 2022

With an inflation rate of 8.4% in October against 8.3% in September, WAEMU is facing an unprecedented inflationary spiral. While countries can’t do anything about external factors, Daouda Sembene, director of international development consultancy AfriCatalyst, believes there’s a lot to be done internally.

“It is important to continue to implement structural reforms to ensure that countries move steadily and quickly towards energy sector reforms and everything that can allow them to ensure that their economy is increasingly competitive,” says Daouda Sembene.
