This technical assistance (TA) report on Anguilla focuses on modernization of the customs legislative framework. The mission prepared a framework for a customs Act in line with the recommendations made in the Caribbean Regional Technical Assistance Center (CARTAC) TA Assignment Report of April 2022. A major challenge for the customs administration will be growing the capacity to be able to deliver all that has been added into the Act. The full automation of customs procedures and implementation of risk management principles may also be a challenge. However, automation is the foundation of any customs modernization program. It is the key to move to a more efficient and informed administration of customs controls. The mission prepared a synoptic table highlighted by color codes to summarize the required, recommended and suggested additions to the Customs Act. The Synoptic Table list the general principles of the main provisions highlighted green in the draft Customs Act. These are listed in three categories, red, being principles that are required to be implemented; yellow, being principles that are recommended to be implemented and, green being those principles that are suggested to be implemented.

This paper describes the recent economic developments and economic outlook and risks of the Côte d’Ivoire’s economy. Over the past four years, Côte d’Ivoire’s economic performance has been impressive, in sharp contrast with the preceding 10 years marked by conflicts and economic stagnation. Growth has been accompanied by a modest decline in poverty, but other human development indicators have been slow to improve. Financial sector vulnerabilities could trigger a shock to the economy or reinforce the impact on the real sector of nonfinancial shocks, potentially generating self-reinforcing adverse spillover effects on the economy in the absence of countervailing policy action.
