Kingdom of Lesotho :, Selected Issues and Statistical Appendix

The challenge of achieving broad-based growth in Lesotho is discussed. Economic growth is inconsistent. Lesotho is highly dependent on trade with South Africa. The sources of growth in Lesotho using a social accounting matrix model and a growth-accounting framework are outlined. The main constraints to growth and private investment and current policy initiative to promote broad-based growth and private investment are analyzed. The various methods employed suggest that there is neither external stability nor significant evidence of exchange rate misalignment
