Christine Lagarde pledges IMF will continue to support reforms initiated by the Government of Georgia

“A great deal of work has been done under your leadership in terms of stability, fight against corruption, education and inclusive growth,” Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), said speaking at a joint news conference with Prime Minister of Georgia Mamuka Bakhtadze in Tbilisi on May 20.

According to her, the International Monetary Fund will continue to support reforms initiated by the Government of Georgia in the future.

“I can endlessly list the tasks that are included in your program and what you have set for your people to achieve stability and progress in your society. We stay committed to you. Soon the fourth review will be over. The third review was completed in December of the last year. There is a lot more to be done in order the country to end the program within the framework of an extended financing mechanism. I am sure you will have a great success in this regard, too. I will assist you as well as the government of the country in the future in order the reforms to be implemented in line of the goals that are set by you and are agreed with us,” Christine Lagarde said.
