This paper is an account of Seychelles’ monetary efforts to establish its position in 2012. After the recovery in 2008, the country had solid growth through 2011. The important threat was external risks, which could lower tourist inflows, and piracy. Alternatively, the authorities were vigilant, and organized the state by strengthening state enterprises, introducing new reforms to eradicate obstacles to the private sector, and the increasing bills for monetary purposes. The Executive Board acknowledges that these policies enhanced a positive outlook for the country.

This paper discusses key findings of the Third Review Under the Stand-By Arrangement for Seychelles. The program is on track, and macroeconomic stabilization has advanced rapidly. The authorities continue to implement the program with a high degree of ownership and success. All quantitative performance criteria (PC) and structural benchmarks at end-September 2009 were met. The structural reform effort is progressing well. Key progress has been made on public financial management, notably through the treasury single account. The 2010 budget features a much improved and complete presentation of government finance.

This paper discusses key findings of the First Review for Seychelles under the Stand-By Arrangement. Developments under the program at end-December 2008 were broadly satisfactory. Although growth was lower and inflation higher than targeted in 2008, the liberalization of the exchange regime and interest rate have removed the severe distortions weighing on the economy, and early signs of stabilization are apparent. The program targets for 2009 have been adjusted, primarily in light of the much more difficult external environment.
