Mottley: IMF on way back

Social Share

The team from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) will be back in Barbados this week.

This has been revealed by Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley as she addressed the 77th Annual Delegates Conference of the Barbados Workers’ Union yesterday.

The Prime Minister said Jamaica and other countries had taken at least 15 months of a structural adjustment programme “to do what we are now trying to do”.

But she noted she hoped Barbados’ programme with the IMF would not be that long.

“The IMF returns next week and I pray that it will not take us eight to nine months to do what we have to do. But I am equally conscious that we are only one of the parties at the table,” Mottley said, as she pledged to keep the country up to date on the progress of the talks with the IMF.  (HLE)
