The International Monetary Fund is planning a small mission during April 25-May 2, 2001. The objectives of the mission are to assess progress under the Poverty Reduction and Growth Facility (PRGF) and to discuss future economic and financial policies with the new President, Parliament, and Government. The mission will be led by Mr. Richard Haas, Advisor in the IMF's European II Department.

The IMF's Executive Board approved the three year loan under the PRGF for the Republic of Moldova in an amount equivalent to SDR 110.88 million (about US$142 million) on December 21, 2000 (see http://www.imf.md). Two tranches, totaling nearly US$25 million, have already been disbursed under the PRGF: the first tranche of US$12 million was disbursed on December 29, 2000 and the second tranche of US$12 million was disbursed on February 23, 2001.

The IMF office in Chisinau will provide information on the outcome of the discussions shortly after the mission's departure.
