The government embarked on a reform program in early 1999 to revive the momentum and policy measures that had been interrupted in 1997 and 1998 owing to the regional financial crisis and internal political turmoil. Monetary and exchange rate policies in 1999 were also supportive of improved economic conditions. The 17 percent increase in broad money was fully reflected in an increase in net foreign assets. Executive Directors welcomed Cambodia's improved macroeconomic performance and progress with structural reforms, which has helped increase confidence considerably.

This paper reviews economic developments in Nepal during 1996–98. During 1997–98, the authorities maintained broad macroeconomic stability and there was an improvement in the external position. However, real GDP growth slowed to below 2 percent in 1997/98 (fiscal year ending July 15) and, after remaining in single digits over the last several years, the 12-month inflation rate accelerated, as food prices jumped owing to temporary agricultural supply factors. Aided by the strong exports in the region and continued generous donor financing, gross official reserves increased in 1997/98 to more than US$700 million.

This report describes recent economic and financial developments in Guinea–Bissau, focusing on 1994 and early 1995, and provides statistical coverage from 1990.

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.

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.
