Inflation rose to 1.4 percent in 2021, from 0.9 percent in 2020, due to higher food prices resulting from supply constraints on imported goods. Foreign exchange reserves are estimated at 9 months of imports. The country received $24.3 million in SDR allocation. The current account deficit widened in 2021 to 3.6 percent of GDP from 2.0 percent in 2020 due to the decline in foreign aid, coupled with an increase in the trade deficit.
