Summary:

Zambia’s 2005 Article IV Consultation and Third Review Under the Poverty Reduction and Growth Facility are discussed. Expenditure restraint, including on the wage bill, has helped to put the fiscal operations of the government on a sustainable course and contributed to the attainment of the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries completion point. Progress has also been made on the structural reforms agenda, including public expenditure management, public debt management, the resolution of insolvent nonbank financial institutions, and the privatization of the Zambia National Commercial Bank.
