The economic recovery has continued to gain strength even as progress on the structural reform agenda has been modest. Economic activity through September continued to exceed expectations; fiscal outturns are running ahead of projections; non-performing loans have stabilized; and bank deposits are rising. All end-September performance criteria were met. However, the implementation of the structural reform agenda has suffered delays. Discussions focused on key remaining policy priorities envisaged under the program and for the period beyond. The emphasis was on policies to accelerate reductions in non-performing loans (NPLs) in order to revive lending and boost growth. These included expanding the range of legal instruments available to banks and stepping up implementation of the new private debt restructuring framework. Discussions also stressed the need to lock in fiscal gains given still-high public debt, and avoid further delays in implementing structural reforms that are essential to sustainably re-invigorate growth and create employment.
