Summary: The IMF’s Executive Board completed the first review under the Extended Credit Facility (ECF) arrangement in June 2010 and decided that the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) had reached the completion point under the Enhanced Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) Initiative. In 2010, an improvement in global economic conditions supported strong macroeconomic performance; however, weaknesses in the financial sector were also exposed. The authorities recognized the importance of strengthening the independence and effectiveness of the central bank to sustain low and stable inflation.
