“Much needed and timely conclusion of the staff level agreement, international recognition of ongoing reforms in Ukraine. Together with the recent adoption of anti-money laundering law (final analysis of which still ongoing), should open the way also to the EU’s macro-financial assistance,” the ambassador stated.
As we reported earlier, an agreement on cooperation between Ukraine and the IMF on a new lending program was reached. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund Kristalina Georgieva discussed this during a telephone conversation, the press service of the President and the Cabinet of Ministers informed.
“Our conversation with the IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva was very constructive. I am glad that we have found full understanding and our turbo mode was highly appreciated by the IMF. I am grateful to the parliament, government and our entire team for the tireless work for the sake of Ukraine,” Zelensky said.
