Summary:

The staff report for the 2008 Article IV Consultation of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia discusses economic developments and policies. The new government’s economic program aims to raise growth further, but does not address these vulnerabilities. Plans to increase the central government deficit permanently to about 2 percent of GDP or perhaps even higher risk worsening external vulnerabilities. The main risk to growth and macroeconomic stability is the widening current account deficit.
