Summary: Discussions on the first review under the Extended Credit Facility (ECF) arrangement focused on program performance as well as policy commitments and reforms for 2014. The main objectives of the program remain to entrench macroeconomic stability, build fiscal and external buffers and improve prospects for inclusive growth, in the context of a new Poverty Reduction Strategy. Hence, structural reforms continue to focus on strengthening the fiscal position through enhanced revenue mobilization and progress in Public Financial Management reforms; supporting financial and private sector development; and advancing civil service reforms.
