Summary:

This paper focuses on the First Review for the Republic of Congo under the Poverty Reduction and Growth Facility (PRGF). Policy implementation under the authorities’ PRGF arrangement through 2008 and the early part of 2009 was broadly satisfactory. The quantitative target on the non-oil primary fiscal balance was observed, but the authorities contracted new nonconcessional external debt. The authorities have also made progress in implementing many of the floating completion point triggers under the enhanced Heavily Indebted Poor Countries Initiative.
