The IMF’s Africa Regional Technical Assistance Center South (AFRITAC South), in collaboration with the Africa Training Institute, held a seminar on “Strengthening Fiscal Frameworks and Public Financial Management Systems for Managing Natural Resource Wealth” on September 21–25, 2015 in Mauritius.
The AFRITACs Central and South organized on September 28-October 2 an interregional seminar, in collaboration with the Africa Training Institute. The event organized at the institute’s headquarters in Mauritius brought together senior officials and experts in tax and customs from Burundi, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Comoros, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, Madagascar, Mauritius, the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Republic of Congo.
At the conclusion of the mission, Mr. Trines, issued the following statement: “The economic situation in Comoros continues to be difficult. The crisis in the electricity sector and the slower-than-expected implementation of the public investment program (PIP) have adversely affected economic activity and tax revenue. Unbudgeted increases in the wage bill and the exhausted Economic Citizenship program’s (ECP) deposits have limited the government’s scope to finance itself domestically. Therefore, the government has been falling ever further behind with the payment of public sector wages and salaries since late 2014.
“The mission projects that economic growth will be only about 1 percent in 2015, well below the estimated population growth rate. Overall inflation appears to have remained moderate, at around 2 percent on an annual basis, despite the substantial appreciation of the dollar against the euro. However, this is difficult to substantiate as the consumer price index has not been updated on the basis of actual price data since November 2014. Moreover, the appreciation of the dollar has led to intensified pressures on the balance of payments due to the high dependence on and limited substitutability of imports. As a result, international reserves have declined.

The Mediterranean sea has become a graveyard for Africa’s youth. Every day, we see images of what would appear to be a continent racked by conflict and poverty, and people risking – often losing – their lives in an attempt to flee . Yet Africa has 11 of the 20 fastest growing economies in the world. Africa has enormous resources, and almost half of the world’s uncultivated land that is suitable for growing food crops. So why are so many people desperate to leave behind a land of such opportunity?
