IMF meets with Ukrainian delegation
Christine Lagarde, the IMF's managing director, met with Stepan Kubiv, the governor of the National Bank of Ukraine, Oleksandr Shlapak, the Ukrainian minister of finance, and Pavlo Sheremeta, the Ukrainian minister of economic development and trade.
Lagarde and the Ukrainian authorities made progress in their efforts to fulfill actions from the joint IMF-Ukraine plan. She expressed confidence that the cooperation program will be approved by the IMF executive board.
The primary goal of the IMF financial aid program is to help Ukraine become more financially independent so it can operate without external help.
The delegation from Ukraine participated in in the annual meeting of the board of governors of the IMF and the World Bank Group on April 10-14 in Washington. Kubiv led the delegation for Ukraine.
