In response to media questions regarding the timing
of the next IMF mission to hold discussions with the Moldovan authorities in
the context of the sixth reviews of their IMF-supported program under the
Extended Credit Facility (ECF) and the Extended Fund Facility (EFF)
arrangements, we would like to inform, that the mission has been postponed
as agreed with the authorities.
Meanwhile, we urge the authorities to proceed with
the implementation of measures needed to complete the sixth and final
reviews of the program—including stabilization of Banca de Economii and
adoption of necessary fiscal policies to support the budget—as discussed
with the IMF mission that visited Chişinău in November 2012.
