It urged for reforms in agriculture, and more investment in social sectors and infrastructure. ”50 The Bank’s Country Memoran- The politics of causes and consequences 29 dum for 1996 took stock of the first five years of reform. 51 The Bank’s 1998 Macroeconomic Update reemphasized the large public sector deficit (about 6 percent of GDP) as the major outstanding concern.

But these policy commitments in the import sector were politically controversial to maintain. It was easy for opponents of openness to point to these and invoke protectionist sentiments or arguments that drew attention to national sovereignty. But precisely because import control is such a politically charged issue, commitments to keep imports free from control needed to be ensconced through international obligations such as these, so that they survive changes in government.
