"My ambitious plan is to manage to complete it (the program with the IMF, - 112 International), so that in 2023 we would not be disturbed by the question when would we get the new loan, being able to provide ourselves instead", Markarova said.
The official hopes that the program of cooperation with the IMF that is now subject to negotiations would be the last one.
According to Markarova, currently, the Ukrainian government and the IMF mission lead the negotiations on a loan program that would let Ukraine implement many reforms. The country should be able to leave the program after it's over, just like Poland did it once, Markarova said.
Currently, Ukraine and the IMF cooperate under the short-term program that is supposed to be over by early 2020. It already received one of the three loans it is supposed to get within the program (USD 3.9 billion).
