Chisinau, 30 September /MOLDPRES/- Parliament Speaker Igor Corman met International Monetary Fund’s Mission Chief for Moldova Max Alier today, the parliament’s communication and public relations department has reported.
The officials tackled the forecasts and expectations of the macroeconomic situation in 2014, budgetary prospects for 2014 and the medium-term budgetary framework, as well as the situation in the national financial and banking sectors. The sides also exchanged opinions on the domestic political situation and regional context.
Max Alier informed about the goals of the second IMF mission, on a visit to Moldova, to make a post-programme monitoring analysis in the context of regular consultations, in line with the Fund’s Statute. Alier stressed that the IMF was willing to further provide the needed technical assistance necessary for authorities, in order to improve the financial and economic policies.
The two officials also referred to the advantages of enforcement of the Moldova-European Union Association Agreement, including the Free Trade Agreement.
„The implementation of the Association Agreement with EU will help us modernise Moldova through structural reforms in justice, education, health and other important sectors, but, concomitantly, we must create conditions for increasing investments in Moldova, in order to provide new jobs. At the same time, we have to solve problems that affect ties with Russia – an important partner for us and to use possibilities provided by EU, to back the local producers,” Corman said.
The previous IMF mission to Moldova was on 22-30 April 2014. Within the last programme, Moldova benefited from the Fund’s financial assistance worth about 566 million dollars.
