This paper discusses Ghana’s Second Review Under the Extended Credit Facility Arrangement and Request for Waiver for Nonobservance of Performance Criterion (PC). Program implementation has been broadly satisfactory to date, but the economic outlook remains difficult, and risks are tilted to the downside. All PCs were met at end-August 2015, with the exception of the continuous PC on nonaccumulation of external arrears, which was not observed owing to some small payments delays. The IMF staff supports the authorities’ request for a waiver for this, given the corrective actions that will be implemented to avoid new external arrears. The IMF staff recommends completion of the second review.

Morocco has made substantial progress in increasing inclusive growth over the past decade, but additional efforts in terms of growth-enhancing structural reforms are needed. Preserving economic efficiency and fostering growth while strengthening inclusiveness remains a priority. This paper describes the fuel subsidy system in Morocco, introduces an organizing framework to illustrate the trade-offs involved in meeting various economic and social objectives when considering subsidy reform, and highlights some lessons from the international experience in implementing subsidy reforms that may be pertinent to the case of Morocco.

Abstract

This evaluation examines factors influencing the effectiveness of the IMF structural conditionality in bringing about structural reform. It assesses the impact of the streamlining initiative launched in 2000 and of the 2002 Conditionality Guidelines. These guidelines aimed at reducing the volume and scope of structural conditionality by requiring “parsimony” in the use of conditions and stipulated that conditions must be “critical” to the achievement of the program goals. The evaluation finds that during the period 1995–2004, there was extensive use of structural conditionality in IMF-supported programs, with an average of 17 conditions per program/year.
