Johan Mathisen
IMF Resident Representative in the Republic of Moldova



A working mission of the European Department of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) headed by
Mr. Graeme Justice visited Chişinău during February 12-14, 2009.

The mission discussed with the authorities recent macroeconomic developments in the region and appropriate policy responses. Economic performance in 2008 was positive. The weaker outlook for the region will inevitably have an impact on the Moldovan economy, and discussions focused on how to minimize the impact on growth and mitigate the social consequences for the population. The IMF stands ready to assist Moldova together with the international community to help address these challenges.
