ADDIS ABABA, Sept. 27 (Xinhua) -- The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has praised Ethiopia's economy for showing strong resilience during the past fiscal year amid continued weak global prices for Ethiopia's key exports and the reemergence of drought conditions in parts of Ethiopia.
International Monetary Fund (IMF) staff team led by Julio Escolano, an advisor for IMF's African department, had paid a working visit to Ethiopia from September 13 to 26 to conduct the 2017 Article IV consultation discussions with the Ethiopian government.

Real gross domestic product (GDP) is estimated to have increased by 9 percent in 201617,"" team leader Escolano said.
Prudent budget execution led to a lower-than-planned fiscal deficit, estimated at 2.5 percent of GDP, the assessment indicated. IMF further advised the Ethiopian government that monetary policy should also be tightened so as to complement the restrictive fiscal stance.
""Government interventions to mitigate the social impact of the drought, in collaboration with development partners, were timely and effective Antonio Garcia Color Rush Jersey , thus limiting its human cost,"" said Escolano.
