An International Monetary Fund mission, led by Mr. Ron van Rooden, visited Ukraine during November 14-22, 2019. At the end of the mission, Mr. van Rooden issued the following statement:

“The IMF staff team had constructive and productive discussions with the Ukrainian authorities and commended them on the considerable progress made during the last few months in advancing reforms and continuing with sound economic policies. The mission made significant further progress in the discussions on policies and reforms that can underpin a new IMF-supported program, including monetary, fiscal, and financial sector policies, as well as reforms to improve the business environment, strengthen the rule of law, and increase economic growth. Discussions will continue in the coming weeks.”
