IMF mission to return to Ukraine in January

An International Monetary Fund (IMF) mission will return to Ukraine for further work in January 2015, according to a statement released by IMF Mission Chief for Ukraine Nikolay Gueorguiev following the mission’s work in December, Ukrinform reports.
“Discussions will continue over the coming weeks, following the mission’s departure. The mission is expected to return to Kyiv for policy discussions with the Ukrainian authorities in January 2015,” reads the statement.
However, the IMF positively assessed the work conducted with representatives of the Ukrainian authorities on December 9-18.
“The mission held productive technical discussions with the new economic team of the Ukrainian government and with the National Bank of Ukraine in the context of the Fund-supported program, covering key issues facing the economy,” reads the document.
The IMF confirmed that “the Ukrainian authorities are preparing to move decisively on a broad and comprehensive agenda to stabilize and reform the economy, while coping with the difficult challenges that emerged in the last year.”
In this context, the fund stated that “we advanced substantially our mutual understandings of policy priorities going forward.”
