In Kyiv, representatives from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) have begun discussions with Ukrainian authorities and other partners to discuss ongoing support. The IMF team is led by Uma Ramakrishnan, Deputy Director of the IMF’s European Department. They will be discussing the economic policy objectives of the Ukrainian authorities and the challenges facing the Ukrainian economy.
On February 13th, an IMF team will participate in the inaugural meeting of the Steering Committee of the Ukraine Capacity Building Fund. This gathering will include Ukrainian authorities, development partners, and IMF staff to discuss priorities for enhancing Ukraine’s capacity and the IMF’s support for this task.
After these discussions, an IMF mission led by Gavin Gray will start discussions with Ukrainian authorities in Warsaw as part of the third review of the IMF-supported Extended Fund Facility (EFF). Ukraine received a third tranche of funding worth about $900 million from the IMF under EFF program in December 2023.
