Summary:

This paper discusses Afghanistan’s Third Review Under the Extended Credit Facility (ECF) Arrangement and Request for Modification of Performance Criteria (PCs). Program implementation through end-December 2017 was satisfactory, despite the challenging security situation and mounting political risks. All quantitative PCs and eight of the nine structural benchmarks were met. The end-April 2018 benchmark related to asset declarations by public officials was implemented with a short delay. The IMF staff supports the completion of the third review under the ECF arrangement and the authorities’ request for a modification of three PCs for June 2018.
