This 2006 Article IV Consultation highlights that with generally prudent macroeconomic policies, Namibia has enjoyed robust growth, moderate inflation, and strong external surpluses. Growth is expected to increase to 4½ percent in 2006, after 4¼ percent in 2005, owing in part to a recovery in diamond production. Rising oil prices and interest rates have not yet noticeably affected activity. Public debt is poised to rise again over the medium term in light of an expected decline in custom union (SACU) receipts and an increase in spending to address Namibia’s development needs.

Tt’s hard to solve a problem whose dimensions can’t be grasped. And for many countries, an essential step toward redressing poverty and integrating with the world economy is a statistical system capable of assessing domestic needs, monitoring progress toward a goal, and exchanging reliable data with the global community. In recent years, the IMF’s Statistics Department has been on the front lines helping countries do just that. Carol Carson, Director of the IMF’s Statistics Department, and Jan Bové, Chief of the General Data Dissemination System Unit, discuss one of the Department’s latest projects—an ambitious effort to help 14 anglophone African countries improve their statistical systems through the guidance provided by the IMF’s General Data Dissemination System (GDDS, see box, page 25).
