The day before the Forum, IMF representative Gerry Rice informed that the Fund will consider cooperation with Ukraine on the EFF program in July.

Earlier, Ivan Miklos, senior economic adviser to Prime Minister Volodymyr Hroisman, announced that Ukraine would possibly need to vote more laws to comply with IMF requirements for allocation of the entire amount of the $1.7-billion tranche approved last year.

Miklos estimated that the tranche would be possibly delivered in parts, the first one of $1 billion in July. The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has not yet considered all the bills required by IMF, although the government hoped it would happen by late May.
