Summary:

This paper discusses key findings of the Third Review Under the Policy Support Instrument for Senegal. All end-December 2011 quantitative assessment criteria were met—except one on the overall fiscal balance, which was missed by a small margin. Some progress was achieved in structural reforms but a number of benchmarks were missed. The new authorities have confirmed their commitment to the objectives of the program. IMF staff recommends completion of the review and supports the waiver for nonobservance of the end-December 2011 assessment criterion on the overall fiscal deficit.
