Summary:

This Information Annex highlights that the World Bank and the IMF are providing complementary support to help São Tomé and Príncipe strengthen public financial management and make progress toward debt sustainability. The World Bank’s work program is guided by an Interim Strategy Note approved in 2011 that focuses on accelerating sustainable and broad-based economic growth and on strengthening governance, public institutions, and human capital. A new Country Assistance Strategy for 2013–16 will be completed in 2014, following the recent completion of a Joint Staff Assessment Note on the country’s second National Poverty Reduction Strategy. Regarding debt sustainability, the World Bank and the IMF teams prepared a Joint IMF–World Bank Debt Sustainability Analysis update in 2012.
