Summary:

Bolivia’s 2007 Article IV Consultation reports that reforms are needed to make the budget a more effective developmental and poverty-reducing tool. The fiscal position has shifted into a substantial surplus, and public debt has been substantially reduced. Financial sector stability has improved, although dollarization is still high. Efforts to address remaining financial sector vulnerabilities should be intensified. Priority areas of reform include the adoption of prudential regulations to mitigate market risk and credit risks from dollarization; and of legislation governing corporate bankruptcy/restructuring.
