FINANCE MINISTER'S COMMENTS

 "We inherited a sentiment of doom and gloom. The investment community had almost written us off. We have come a long way since then."

 "We have turned around the economy, dramatically restoring macroeconomic stability and creating the conditions for sustainable poverty elimination, job creation, durable double digit economic growth."

 "While being mindful of the challenges ... this gives us reason to feel optimistic."

 "Domestic and international investors are seeing us with renewed interest and hope."
