This paper discusses key findings of the First Review Under the Poverty Reduction and Growth Facility (PRGF). Overall performance under the program has been strong. All but one of the quantitative performance criteria and indicative targets were met. Fiscal performance has been impressive, reflecting higher-than-projected revenues and strengthened expenditure control. However, two structural performance criteria were not observed. The medium-term macroeconomic framework underlying the program has been modified slightly. Maintaining fiscal discipline remains key to lowering domestic public debt and protecting poverty-reducing expenditures.

Key objectives of the program include making progress toward fiscal sustainability, strengthening internal controls and the operational independence of the Central Bank of The Gambia, and enhancing public financial management and accountability.

This 2005 Article IV Consultation highlights that monetary development in the Republic of Equatorial Guinea continues to be dominated by fiscal policy. Fiscal outcome was marked by an increase in the fiscal surplus in 2004 compared with 2003 on account of a stronger-than-expected revenue performance owing to higher oil prices and increase in hydrocarbon production that was partly offset by a substantial increase in capital expenditure. Important progress has also been made with regard to transparency and accountability of oil-related revenues and public finance.
