Inflation has nudged higher owing to rising international fuel prices and elevated food prices. The authorities’ immediate fiscal priorities are to contain discretionary current spending and bolster investment. All performance criteria and indicative targets under the program through December 2011 were observed. One structural benchmark for the Eighth Review was met while the other is in progress.
