Through its Strategic Plan for Emerging Gabon (PSGE), the  government aims to turn Gabon into an emerging economy by 2025. This rests on three pillars: ‘Green Gabon’, ‘Industrial Gabon’ and ‘Service-Industry Gabon’. The PSGE hopes to bring about an ambitious programme of structural change in the national economy, based on improved governance of the state, the recovery in public and private investment, the development of infrastructure and human resources and a more equitable distribution of national wealth.
