This paper evaluates Azerbaijan’s 2003 Article IV Consultation, Second Review Under the Poverty Reduction and Growth Facility (PRGF), and Requests for Waivers of Performance Criteria, Extension of Arrangement and Rephasing of Purchases. Performance relative to the quantitative targets under the program was strong, as all quantitative performance criteria and most indicative targets were met. Implementation of the structural reforms under the program was slower than planned, delaying completion of the second review. The authorities are requesting several waivers related to delays in structural reforms.

The staff report for the combined 2004 Article IV Consultation on the Kyrgyz Republic highlights the economic developments and external policies. The Kyrgyz Republic’s good economic performance owes much to its macroeconomic policies. Fiscal consolidation has helped to stabilize external debt, particularly by containing the externally financed public investment program. The anticipated decline in gold exports calls for actions to diversify exports and preserve cost competitiveness through low inflation and structural reforms to boost productivity growth.

An IMF staff team has visited Dushanbe during April 23–May 3, 2001, to undertake the second review of the third annual arrangement under the Poverty Reduction and Growth Facility (PRGF). With the exception of a continuous performance criterion pertaining to the accumulation of external arrears, all of the performance criteria for end-March 2001 have been observed. The authorities continue to make good progress with the preparation of their Poverty Reduction and Strategy Paper (PRSP). Policy performance under the macroeconomic and structural adjustment program has improved in recent months, but some concerns persist.

Tanzanian President Benjamin William Mkapa’s remarks on the inauguration of East AFRITAC could not have been clearer or more emphatic. If Africa is to define its own economic destiny, it must strengthen its ability to design and implement sound economic policies. And policy ownership and capacity building are what the new regional technical assistance center, which opened October 24 in Dar es Salaam, is all about.

Participation in the IMF’s General Data Dissemination System (GDDS) has nearly quadrupled over the past four years as countries have sought to improve data quality and establish their credentials as providers of comprehensive, timely, and reliable statistics. Created in 1997, the GDDS now has 83 participating countries (chart) and may see 10 more countries join in 2005. Its data framework is also being put to new use in the fight against poverty and in helping countries to meet the UN Millennium Development Goals.
