Stabilization
"The Central Bank of Suriname places a very high emphasis on stabilizing the economy, the exchange rate, boosting reserves, raising industrial production, increasing exports, stabilizing exports and balancing the overall economy.

“There has been a boom in our commodity prices, but, as I always say, there is no luck without macroeconomic policies.”
