A mission from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is due to arrive in Luanda Wednesday for a working visit until 29 January, Angolan news agency Angop reported, citing a statement issued Tuesday in the Angolan capital.

The mission, led by Mauro Macagni, is part of the evaluation process of the economic performance of the countries that have concluded an IMF financial assistance programme, and which the IMF carried out every six months.

During the mission the IMF team will meet with members of the Permanent Economic Commission of the Council of Ministers and have working meetings with officials from the Ministries of Finance, Planning, Land Planning and the National Bank of Angola.

These meetings will review recent economic developments in 2012 and the outlook for 2013, covering matters of fiscal policy, monetary policy, the real economy and the social sector.

The IMF team is also expected to meet with institutions and bodies within the financial system and the public and private business sector. (macauhub)
