Although Regional Technical Assistance Center (RTAC) target countries operate in diverse economic environments, they experience common difficulties in macroeconomic policy design and implementation. While for a minority of the countries, debt levels remain low as share of GDP, the trend is on the rise across Africa and the Central Asian and Caucasus region. Risks of further deterioration of fiscal conditions loom dark in the absence of increased revenue mobilization efforts and improved expenditure management. RTACs offer capacity building covering all fields of the IMF's expertise to adress these issues.


To support countries to design and implement macroeconomic policies that promote inclusive growth and help advance on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by building government’s institutional and human capacity and by providing technical advice in core areas of the IMF’s expertise.
