Adjustment Programme

(redirected from Adjustment Policy)

Adjustment Programme

A set of economic or monetary policies a government takes in conjunction with the International Monetary Fund to reduce a deficit in a country's balance of payments. An adjustment programme often includes measures designed to make the country more fiscally sound, but which are painful to the populace. For example, an adjustment programme may stipulate a reduction or elimination of food subsidies. See also: Structural Adjustment Loan Facility.
