Summary:

This paper focuses on Niger’s Request for a Three-Year Arrangement Under the Poverty Reduction and Growth Facility (PRGF). Authorities’ reform program for 2005–07 focuses on fiscal consolidation; public and financial sector reforms; and development of social and priority sector strategies. To raise the government’s contribution to domestic savings and investment, gradual reductions in fiscal imbalances will be sought in 2005–07. The structural reform agenda focuses on measures to further improve the supply response of the economy through more efficient allocation of resources and by improving economic governance.
