Despite a relatively high GDP growth rate over the past decade (2000–10), economic growth in Mauritania has not been able to make a significant dent in poverty. Rapid and sustained poverty reduction requires inclusive growth that allows people to contribute to and benefit from expanding economic activity. Mauritania needs to make greater progress toward inclusive growth by enhancing the distributional impact of public spending and by improving the quality of pro-poor spending. The Executive Board recommends effective monetary policies to meet the challenges.

To support low-income countries in achieving the Millennium Development Goals and help prevent a recurrence of debt problems that could undermine these objectives, the IMF, in collaboration with the World Bank and in consultation with donors and low-income countries, is working to develop a framework to guide low-income countries’ borrowing. This framework would assist countries that have already received permanent debt relief under the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) Initiative and other low-income countries where debt is potentially an issue.
