Summary:

Lingering effects of the Ebola epidemic and the commodity price decline and the withdrawal of the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) are delaying the economic recovery. Growth is below expectations, while fiscal space is constrained. A sharp decline in net foreign exchange inflows has put pressure on the exchange rate and inflation, and led to a loss of international reserves. The Presidential election is adding near-term uncertainty.
