The Islamic Republic of Iran’s 2008 Article IV Consultation underlies that the economy is showing signs of overheating owing to high oil prices and a significant policy stimulus. IMF policy advice has focused on measures to reduce inflation and structural reforms aimed at stimulating growth and employment creation. Consistent with IMF recommendations, in 2007/08, the authorities reduced the non-oil fiscal deficit, contained energy subsidies, improved revenue administration, and intensified their efforts to bring banking supervision closer to international standards.
