Summary:

This paper reviews the Central African Republic’s three-year arrangement under the poverty reduction and growth facility. Concerns about the social impact of higher fuel prices have delayed implementation of an automatic pricing formula and caused serious fiscal losses. The new financing strategy is based on issuing debt instruments in the regional financial market to improve the domestic debt profile. IMF staff recommends completion of the second review, granting of waivers for nonobservance of performance criteria, and an augmentation of access.
