New head of International Monetary Fund's mission to visit Chisinau
The new head of the International Monetary Fund's (IMF) mission in Moldova, Graeme Justice, will pay a visit to Chisinau on 20-27 September.

The statement was made at a today's meeting between Premier Vasile Tarlev and IMF s Resident Representative in Moldova Johan Mathisen.

The two officials focused on the collaboration between the Moldovan government and IMF, including the implementation of Government-promoted reforms underway in Moldova with the Fund's support.

Johan Mathisen said that constructive and highly reliable cooperation relations have been established between the IMF mission and the Moldovan government institutions in terms of elaboration and implementation of balanced economic development policies. The IMF official stressed that this dialogue should be continued with the new head of the IMF mission for Moldova, Graeme Justice.

The IMF representative congratulated the government for the evolutions achieved lately in economic development, referring particularly to the adoption of the law on preventing and combating money laundering and financing of terrorism, as well as to the adoption of amendments to the law on capital's amnesty. The recently made changes represent an important step opening Moldova as a suitable country for investments, and now, when we shift to the implementation period, we are prepared to provide all the necessary support in this respect, Johan Mathisen said.

The prime minister appreciated the IMF's constructive position in the relations with the government. Vasile Tarlev specified that the government is interested in a good cooperation with the international financial organisations, so as to ensure Moldova's economic development and the well-being of its citizens.

While highlighting the government's most important trends of activity aimed at successful implementation of reforms and European standards in all the fields, the premier expressed conviction that the set goals can be easier achieved by joint efforts, by using IMF s experience and potential.
