Summary:

The economic recovery continues, despite ongoing political tensions. The political crisis has led to four changes of government over the past two years, and ECOWAS is calling for decisive implementation of last year’s Conakry Accord for inclusive government. Nonetheless, growth remains strong, and the government continues to improve tax administration and public financial management (PFM) with support of development partners. Following onsite inspections by the WAEMU Banking Commission, there has been progress towards bringing banks affected by the voided bank bailout of 2015 into compliance with prudential norms.
