The international money lender issued a press release according to which the end-September performance criteria were met with “comfortable margins and that progress continues towards meeting all structural benchmarks”. The press release stated that the government’s policies were starting to bear fruit as external and fiscal deficits were narrowing and inflation was expected to decline.
