Date for post-election visit to Greece not fixed, says IMF

The International Monetary Fund is expecting Greece’s new government to implement “the main goals” of its new program after the elections but does not know exactly when its officials will visit Athens.

Questioned about Sunday’s elections and when IMF representatives will travel to Greece, the Fund’s director of external relations, Gerry Rice, said no date had been fixed for the trip.

“The mission will go to Greece after the elections, once the new government has been formed,” he said. “I don't have a date for you on that.”

Kathimerini understands that the head of the IMF mission, Poul Thomsen may visit Athens on his own as early as next week if a new government is formed but that the mission visit will not take place until June, when the new administration will have to agree almost 11.5 billion euros of new savings for 2013 and 2014.

“In terms of what would be asked of the new government, I think we all know that the program has been agreed,” said Rice. “The major political parties have given their commitment to the major objectives of that program. And so, things haven't changed in that respect. It will be implementation of the main goals of the program.”
