Costa Rica :, Staff Report for the 2006 Article IV Consultation

Abstract
Despite the oil price shock, growth has been high. Discussions focused on the policies needed to reduce Costa Rica’s vulnerabilities, enhance growth, and reduce poverty in a lasting way. Passage of a substantial tax reform is essential. To bring inflation down to low single digits, the authorities plan to recapitalize the central bank and move gradually to a more flexible exchange rate regime. This Article IV Consultation provides an important opportunity to take stock of Costa Rica’s achievements and the challenges ahead
