The Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Thursday completed the first review of The Gambia’s economic performance under a program supported by the Extended Credit Facility (ECF) arrangement.
The completion of the review enables the disbursement of an amount equivalent to SDR 1.555 million (about US$2.3 million), bringing total disbursements under the arrangement to SDR 10.885 million (about US$16.2 million).
