The IMF notes significant progress in the negotiations on a new EFF program for Ukraine and stresses the adoption of legislation on the improvement of the regulatory structure in the banking sector, as well as on the land reform. The press service of the IMF reported it.
According to IMF head Kristalina Georgieva, Ukraine must approve the so-called "anti-Kolomoysky" bill and the bill on the land sale market. The implementation of these steps could help with the allocation of more funding to Ukraine than it had been previously announced.
The IMF also announced the possibility of extending the credit program for Ukraine.
As we reported earlier, on March 22, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and IMF Head Kristalina Georgieva discussed an increase in assistance to Ukraine during the coronavirus epidemic in a telephone conversation.
Zelensky informed the head of the International Monetary Fund about the measures that had been taken in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Ukraine.
