The staff report on Haiti's second and third reviews under the Extended Credit Facility is examined. Haiti has emerged from a protracted and tumultuous electoral period.

The damage caused by the earthquake has been massive, estimated at the equivalent to 120 percent of GDP. The authorities need to sustain high growth, alleviate poverty, and strengthen the country's resilience to external shocks.
