A mission of the International Monetary Fund will visit Bulgaria’s capital Sofia during the period May 10-20, 2011 to hold regular bilateral discussions on economic policies with the Bulgarian authorities.
This is part of the IMF’s surveillance under Article IV of the IMF’s Articles of Agreement. The mission will be headed by Mrs. Catriona Purfield.
“The mission will meet with officials from the Ministry of Finance, the Bulgarian National Bank, other government agencies, as well as representatives from the private sector, including banks and industry, unions, and non-government organizations,” IMF’s Regional Resident Representative in Bulgaria and Romania, Tonny Lybek, said.
The mission will disseminate its conclusions at the end of the mission.
