The IMF Country Reports Series covers economic and financial developments and trends in member countries. Each report, prepared by a staff team after discussions with officials of the country, is published at the option of the member.
This report provides an assessment of fiscal transparency practices in El Salvador. Many of the code standards are followed by the country. In addition, fiscal data dissemination and monthly updating will be improved with the recent incorporation of the Finance Ministry's Fiscal Transparency Portal. Reports on the observance of standards and codes (ROSC) are undertaken on a voluntary basis. Rules and responsibilities are provided by the government to maintain the stability. Relations between government and the public and private sectors are discussed.
