This paper discusses Cabo Verde’s 2019 Article IV Consultation and Request for an Eighteen-Month Policy Coordination Instrument (PCI). The PCI aims at bolstering macroeconomic stability through fiscal consolidation and growth-enhancing reforms to support medium-term fiscal and debt sustainability. Policy discussions and the PCI-supported program focused on achieving medium-term fiscal and debt sustainability; modernizing the monetary policy framework and continuing to build precautionary reserves; bolstering the financial system resilience; restructuring lossmaking State-Owned Enterprises; and advancing structural reforms to support private sector-led growth. The medium-term outlook is positive although risks are tilted to the downside. Economic growth is projected to remain robust while the fiscal and external positions are expected to improve further, underpinned by growth and programmed structural reforms.

This Selected Issues paper examines macroeconomic challenges for a highly tourism-based economy such as Cape Verde. The changing structure of Cape Verde’s balance-of-payments financing calls for a closer look at the volatility of remittances and their role as an absorber of economic shocks. The paper finds that compared with other external inflows, remittances continue to be a reliable source of foreign financing, but they are declining in importance. It also shows that this influence seems to be gradually fading, and remittances are becoming increasingly procyclical.

Over the last several years, Cape Verde has achieved a major economic transformation that is a tribute to its sound homegrown economic reform program. This 2008 Article IV Consultation highlights that real per capita GDP in Cape Verde has increased on average by more than 7 percent a year since 2001, faster than most small island economies and the average for sub-Saharan Africa. Policy implementation under the Policy Support Instrument (PSI) is also strong. All PSI quantitative assessment criteria for end-December 2007 were met with wide margins.
