The mission of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) will arrive in Ukraine in early November. This was reported by the head of the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) Valeriya Gontareva during a briefing on Thursday.
The Ukraine’s Ministry of Finance expected the arrival of the IMF mission on 26 October. However, the mission of the International Monetary Fund delayed visit to Ukraine, due to certain ‘domestic issues’.
Earlier, Finance Minister Alexander Danyluk reported he expects the mission in late October, but did not specify a date. Last time the IMF mission visited Kyiv from 10 to 18 May 2016.
The International Monetary Fund has scheduled the next (third) revision of the cooperation program with Ukraine on November 15, 2016.
As reported, the IMF allocated the third tranche of $ 1 billion to Ukraine. The decision was made on September 14. This decision to provide the tranche of financial assistance for Ukraine was adopted together with the exceptions to the general rules, given the current economic situation in the country.
