This paper discusses Zimbabwe’s Third Review Under the Staff-Monitored Program (SMP) and the successor SMP. Zimbabwe has succeeded in keeping macroeconomic conditions relatively stable, despite difficult political and economic circumstances. In particular, the precarious external position improved somewhat, with higher international reserves and a projected lower current account deficit in 2014. The SMP will cover a 15-month period, October 2014 through December 2015, and will be monitored based on quantitative targets and structural benchmarks. The IMF staff welcomes the authorities’ intention to continue to seek financing through grants or loans that are as concessional as possible, and to limit contracting nonconcessional loans within the ceilings set under the program.

This 2014 Article IV Consultation highlights that economic rebound in Zimbabwe experienced since the end of hyperinflation in 2009 has now ended. After averaging 10 percent over 2009–2012, growth fell to an estimated 3.3 percent in 2013, reflecting tight liquidity conditions, election-year uncertainty, weak demand for key exports, competitiveness pressures, and the impact of adverse weather conditions. Inflation continued its downward trend from 2.9 percent (year over year) at end-2012 to ?0.3 percent in April 2014. The medium-term outlook, under the baseline scenario, is for growth to average some 4 percent, as large mining sector investments reach full capacity.
