IMF Mission to visit Estonia
From tomorrow until 19 October a delegation from the International Monetary Fund, the IMF, will be making its annual visit to Estonia to discuss the country’s economic policy with representatives of the government and private businesses.
During their visit the delegation will be given an overview of the development and prospects of the Estonian economy, the state of the financial sector and fiscal policy developments. The main focus will be on factors behind Estonia’s capacity for growth.
The visit will last a week and a half and the IMF representatives will meet members of the government and the parliament, leaders and analysts from Eesti Pank and the Financial Supervision Authority, and managers and economists from commercial banks and other companies, among others.
The outcome of the IMF visit will be presented by the head of the four-member team Christoph Klingen on Monday 19 October at 11.00-12.00 at a press conference in the Eesti Pank museum, where he will be joined by the Deputy Governor of Eesti Pank Madis Müller and finance minister Sven Sester.
The International Monetary Fund discusses relevant economic policy issues with its member countries every year. The IMF’s annual mission to Estonia, known as an Article IV Consultation, is followed by an IMF report assessing Estonia’s economic policies.
