Summary of economic releases: 19 to 23 April 2021

20 April: SARB Composite Business Cycle Indicators. The leading BCI rose 13.5% y/y in January (2.1% m/m), pointing to a steady economic recovery into 2021.

21 April: South Africa’s March inflation; Ghana’s Q4 2020 GDP and March Producer price inflation. After easing to 2.9% y/y in February, South Africa’s headline inflation is poised to rise given substantially higher fuel prices (including a 27 cents hike in levies as FY2021/21 begins). Ghana’s GDP numbers will reveal the course of the recovery in the country. The economy contracted by a slower rate of 1.1% y/y in Q3 after a -3.2% print in Q2.
