Summary:

Political pressure for faster delivery of tangible economic results has mounted against a backdrop of slower-than-expected economic growth, job losses in some sectors, and delays in infrastructure provision. Macroeconomic performance weakened in 2009 owing to the global recession, but tentative signs of a turnaround have emerged. Banking sector capitalization improved, though profitability remains low. FY2010 budget execution is broadly on track despite resource shortfalls. Medium-term prospects are favorable based on foreign investment commitments and continued donor support for rebuilding infrastructure and institutions.
