Summary:

To support the Bank of South Sudan (BSS) in improving external sector statistics (ESS), the IMF’s Statistics Department (STA) conducted a technical assistance (TA) mission in Juba, South Sudan, during June 17–28, 2019. This mission is part of the ongoing TA to South Sudan on capacity building in ESS. The last ESS mission for South Sudan took place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, during July 30 to August 3, 2018. The action plan of the 2018 mission was largely achieved, including the priority recommendations; however, some of the action items from the 2016 mission are outstanding. Reliable ESS are essential for informed economic policymaking by the authorities and will satisfy the data needs of key stakeholders to assess the country’s external sector developments.
