NBU still hopes for IMF mission's visit to Kyiv before summer recess
The National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) still hopes for the arrival of a mission of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in Kyiv to complete the fourth review of the Extended Fund Facility (EFF) program before the Board of Directors leaves for summer holidays, NBU Governor Yakiv Smolii has said.
"We hope that the Verkhovna Rada will vote in favor of one of the amendments to the law on the anti-corruption court, which is on the agenda today. In addition, the government is constantly in talks with the IMF on the revision of gas tariffs, and we expect that these issues will be resolved in the near future. The Fund has its own "vacation," but, given the importance of the review, we expect that a mission of the Fund can come after agreeing these two issues," he said at a briefing on monetary issues in Kyiv on Thursday, July 12.
