Cabo Verde :, Request for an Arrangement Under the Extended Credit Facility-Press Release; Staff Report; and Statement by the Executive Director for Cabo Verde

Abstract
This paper presents Cabo Verde’s Request for an Arrangement under the Extended Credit Facility. Cabo Verde’s economy is facing significant challenges associated with the lingering effects of the global pandemic, as well as rising food and fuel prices due to the war in Ukraine and the impact of the ongoing five-year drought. The financing package will help mitigate the lingering impact of the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic and the spillover effects of the war in Ukraine; reduce the fiscal deficit and preserve debt sustainability; protect vulnerable groups; and support a reform agenda that leads to higher and more inclusive growth. Key policy actions under the program include measures to boost revenue and improve the efficiency of spending, strengthen state-owned enterprises to mitigate fiscal risks, as well as measures to continue modernizing the monetary policy framework and safeguarding financial stability. Steadfastly implementing the authorities’ development plan will improve the business environment and help support private sector-led growth. Considering Cabo Verde’s high vulnerability to the effects of climate change, the planned bold steps to climate adaptation will be key to boost the economy’s resilience and growth potential
