Summary:

The authorities remain committed to achieving the 3 percent of GDP WAEMU fiscal deficit target one year early in 2018. Containment of current public expenditure and reforms to increase revenues have created space for an increase in public investment, while staying on the planned fiscal consolidation path. Weakness in Treasury operations has required additional borrowing and could undermine fiscal sustainability if not addressed through structural reforms of the Postal system, civil service pensions, as well as measures to strengthen public financial management.
