A delegation from the International Monetary Fund has begun the 4th review of Grenada’s Homegrown Structural Programme and the 2016 Article 4 Consultation.
The 4th review covers the period July to December 2015 and looks at the performance benchmarks for 2016.
The Article 4 Consultation is conducted on an annual basis, with all member states, to assess their economic performance for the past year, and is regarded as an “economic health check.” Other partners participating in this mission include the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB), the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) and the World Bank.
While here, they will hold consultations with officials of the Ministry of Finance and representatives from other Ministries and Departments, Statutory Bodies, main political parties and the Private Sector.
Grenada has so far concluded 3 successful reviews of the programme, which has as its objectives, Sustained economic growth and job creation, Fiscal sustainability; and Debt sustainability.
The Mission will wrap up on Thursday, 3 March 2016.
