At the end of the visit, Mr. Dohlman made the following statement:

“The staff team and the Belarusian authorities made considerable progress in discussing a set of policies which could be supported by a three-year Extended Fund Facility (EFF) arrangement. Discussions on some issues require more time and will continue from respective headquarters in the coming weeks.”
