IMF Needs No Representative in Belarus 16:23, 02/12/2004
As of January 1, 2005, the IMF is to withdraw its permanent representative in Belarus.
The IMF Belarussian rep office will be served by local personnel only. In 1995, the IMF stopped issuing Belarus loans due to the discrepancy between the Belarussian government`s economic policy and IMF recommendations. Between 1992 and 1995, Belarus received $270 million in IMF loans.
