  • At the monetary policy committee (CPM) held last Friday, the BNA decided to adjust some instruments to face the inflationary pressures registered in recent months;

  • In the IMF report on the 5th Programme review, the institution stated it expects 2021 to be the first year of debt reduction as a percentage of GDP, from 135.1% at the end of 2020 to 113.3% at the end of this year;

  • Most of the objectives of the 5th review were met, with a somewhat slower progress in structural targets: only 2 out of 9 were met within the deadline.
