The visit by a mission from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to Ukraine has been moved from late August to late October, David Lipton, a special advisor to the IMF managing director, has said after a meeting with Ukrainian Finance Minister Fedir Yaroshenko and Energy and Coal Industry Minister Yuriy Boiko in Washington.

"We discussed recent economic developments in Ukraine and abroad, and progress under the Stand-By Arrangement (SBA). I stressed the importance of strong policies and reforms to overcome delays and complete the second review," Lipton said, UKRINFORM reported.

He also said that the Ukrainian authorities "reaffirmed their commitment to the objectives of the SBA program and the implementation of pending measures."

Ukraine is planning to agree with IMF experts the revenues and expenditures of the state budget for 2012.

As reported, on August 9, First Deputy Head of Ukraine's Presidential Administration Iryna Akimova said that Ukraine planned to reach a compromise with the IMF by the beginning of September regarding the resumption of funding.
