Nicaragua readies itself for IMF review of its economic program

Nicaragua is almost ready for the review of the economic program it has signed with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) by officials of that organization.

Tuesday, July 22, 2008

Humberto Arbulú, the IMF representative in Nicaragua, said there is a possibility that the program will not be seen until Aug. 6. If that's the case, it will have to wait until the summer recess ends on Aug. 26.
Once the program has been approved, the IMF will release another 20 million dollars for the project, bringing the three-year total assistance to 110 million dollars.
