It’s been ages since Haiti passed with such brilliance the IMF’s macroeconomic and financial reviews.
The reforms of the Haitian authorities relate to governance and the fight against corruption, tax and tax administration, public financial management (including budget preparation and execution), autonomy and governance of the bank center and the fight against money laundering.
“All these reforms have improved the transparency of public expenditure and the financial sector and helped maintain macroeconomic stability,” said the IMF press release, which applauds the adoption of the 2023 budget by the Haitian authorities.
