Summary 1. The Angolan economy was badly buffeted by the sharp drop in global oil prices that began in late-2008. Oil is central to the Angolan economy, contributing 75 percent of government revenues and 96 percent of merchandise exports, and the erosion of oil revenues destabilized both the public finances and the balance of payments. The budget moved into a sizeable deficit; interest rates rose sharply; and the exchange rate, defended by a mix of a reserve depletion and rationing of foreign exchange, came under severe pressure. Facing sizeable financing needs, the authorities began to default on payment obligations to domestic suppliers, undermining the financial position of these entities
