The IMF Country Reports Series covers economic and financial developments and trends in member countries. Each report, prepared by a staff team after discussions with officials of the country, is published at the option of the member.
This paper presents the Joint Staff Assessment of Cape Verde's Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper Preparation Status Report (PRSP PSR). The Council of Ministers reviewed a first draft of the PRSP in April 2004. The authorities later prepared a second PRSP PSR for presentation to the Boards of the IMF and IDA. The report details main activities that have been completed to date, identifies remaining actions for completion, and notes that progress has been made in most of the areas previously identified by IMF staff as needing additional work.
