International Monetary Fund
Better designed and implemented fiscal regimes for oil, gas, and mining can make a substantial contribution to the revenue needs of many developing countries while ensuring an attractive return for investors, according to a new policy paper from the International Monetary Fund. Revenues from extractive industries (EIs) have major macroeconomic implications. The EIs account for over half of government revenues in many petroleum-rich countries, and for over 20 percent in mining countries. About one-third of IMF member countries find (or could find) resource revenues “macro-critical” – especially with large numbers of recent new discoveries and planned oil, gas, and mining developments. IMF policy advice and technical assistance in the field has massively expanded in recent years – driven by demand from member countries and supported by increased donor finance. The paper sets out the analytical framework underpinning, and key elements of, the country-specific advice given. Also available in Arabic: ????? ??????? ?????? ???????? ???????????: ??????? ????????

This 2006 Article IV Consultation highlights that Mongolia’s macroeconomic performance in 2005–06 has been robust, underpinned by a run-up on copper and gold prices, declining inflation, and budget and external current account surpluses. Real GDP growth in 2005–06 is estimated at 7 percent, in line with the average pace since 2002. The mineral sector has been a key engine of growth, supported by favorable weather conditions, and buoyant recovery in the construction and services sectors. Mongolia’s medium-term outlook for sustained growth and poverty reduction is broadly favorable, but subject to risks.

This Background Paper on Guinea highlights that Guinea’s relatively strong macroeconomic performance during 1987–94 allowed for an annual increase in real per capita GDP of 1 percent. On the basis of national account estimates, the growth of value added in the primary sector averaged about 3.7 percent annually during 1986–92 before accelerating to some 5 percent during 1993–94. The buoyancy in the primary sector reflected mainly a strong response of agriculture to economic liberalization and large investments in the agricultural sector.
