We Want Zim To Succeed, We Will Support IMF Programme: UK Ambassador

 

British Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Catriona Laing has said that her country will support a programme by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to help Zimbabwe clear its foreign arrears. Laing revealed this after a meeting with Minister of Finance and Economic Development, Mthuli Ncube in Harare on Tuesday. Speaking to the media after the meeting, Laing said,

We are here to give that support to try and encourage a process back to an IMF programme, perhaps through an interim staff monitoring programme as soon as possible…We will be tracking both pathways, the economic pathway and political pathway. We want Zimbabwe to succeed.

Laing also wrote on her social media account that she has called for further political reforms. Said Laing,

Useful meeting with Mthuli Ncube today. We discussed the cholera outbreak, challenges ahead for Zimbabwe & GOZ’s plans for economic reform. I stressed the importance of further political reforms and for Commission of inquiry to ensure accountability for Aug 1 violence.
