IMF will support the Republic of Moldova in Managing the Refugee Crisis

The refugee crisis management and the support needed by the Republic of Moldova to mitigate its humanitarian and economic impact were discussed today at the meeting of Prime Minister Natalia Gavrilita and the team of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) led by Ruben Atoyan.

The Prime Minister talked about the challenges faced by our country in the context of providing humanitarian assistance to the Ukrainians refugees, stating that it is only by joint effort of external partners that the crisis would be overcome successfully. The parties also discussed the economic impact of the war in Ukraine and the Governmentís action to redirect trade swiftly and ensure food security. For a week, the IMF staff will assess the implementation of the economic reform program supported by the IMF through ECF/EFF arrangements, as well as additional financing needs in the light of the current macroeconomic context.
