By signing the letter of intent (which must be ratified by the board of the International Monetary Fund-IMF), the economic program will conclude this next December and not on October 4th, as originally planned.

"The head of the bank said that once the agreement is ratified, the multilateral agency will disburse $36 million to Nicaragua. Nicaragua and the IMF concluded yesterday the second round of negotiations of the fourth and fifth review of the economic program, which both parties signed in October 2007".
