Summary:

This paper discusses Central African Republic’s Request for a Three-Year Arrangement Under the Poverty Reduction and Growth Facility. Performance under the authorities’ Emergency Post-Conflict Assistance (EPCA) program has been generally satisfactory through end-September 2006, taking into account the difficult external environment. Overall, the main objectives of the EPCA program for this year should be achieved, with a moderate increase in economic growth, an improved fiscal position, and some progress in structural policies. The authorities’ program for 2007–09 aims to build a firm foundation for accelerating private sector-led growth and alleviating poverty.
