St. Kitts and Nevis: Third Review Under the Stand-By Arrangement, Financing Assurances Review and Request for Waivers of Applicability—Staff Report and Press Release on the Executive Board Discussion

While the outlook is for a moderate economic recovery, uncertain external conditions continue to present downside risks to growth.
