Somalia: Staff Report for the First Review Under the Extended Credit Facility Arrangement, and Requests for Modification of Performance Criteria-Press Release; Staff Report; and Statement by the Executive Director for Somalia
Economic activity has picked up in recent months, supported by a rebound in agriculture, though still affected by the lingering effects of two years of drought and recent severe flooding. The security situation remains challenging, with the government scaling up its military actions against the Al-Shabab terrorist group, amid the planned withdrawal of the African Union Transition Mission in Somalia (ATMIS) by end-December 2024. Despite these significant challenges, the authorities remain committed to the reform effort, leveraging the benefits of the HIPC Completion Point achieved in December 2023.
