The coming Tuesday Honduras will receive an IMF technical mission to negotiate the new economic program.
The team will be headed up by Przemek Gajdeczka, who also led the group that came in March for the Article IV consultation. Polish Gajdeczka will come with five subject area experts, especially in fiscal policy, which is what the Porfirio Lobo Sosa government is particularly struggling with.
The Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund will decide no earlier than July.
An IMF mission conducted discussions on the 2010 Article IV consultation with Honduras during May 17-27. The mission met with President Porfirio Lobo, the government’s economic team, as well as private sector and civil society representatives.
