The staff report for the 2007 Article IV Consultation on Guinea-Bissau highlights post-conflict challenges and recent economic developments. The conflict and ensuing political instability have taken a toll on growth and economic policies, and most macroeconomic indicators have worsened in the post-conflict period. The frequent changes in government have eroded international support. The recently appointed government has adopted an emergency program to address the main sources of fiscal slippages that have gained broad support both domestically and internationally, but significant donor support is still needed to fill the financing gap.

This paper describes economic developments in Guinea–Bissau during the 1990s. Following mixed economic performance in 1991–92, a period of financial stabilization in 1993–94 led to an economic program that was supported by a three-year annual arrangement under the Enhanced Structural Adjustment Facility approved in January 1995. After some difficulties in early 1995, the program objectives for budgetary revenue, the external account, and real growth rate were surpassed. Economic developments were generally favorable in 1996 and 1997 although inflation continued to be a source of concern until mid-1997.

At end-1994, the economic and financial situation of Guinea–Bissau remained characterized by large domestic and external imbalances, as well as by a heavy burden of external debt service obligations.
