FinMin, Governor Meet IMF Officials, Private Investors in Lima


According to the Finance Ministry, the talks with IMF officials were mainly about regular annual cooperation with the fund, the situation in Slovenia's banking system and the efforts to reduce non-performing claims, as well as IMF quota reform and the global economic situation.

More specifically, the ministry said that discussions at the level of individual IMF departments also concerned technical assistance in the field of real estate tax, rational budget funds spending and macroprudential policy.

The World Bank is due to release its an annual Doing Business report later this month with the Finance Ministry expecting an improvement in Slovenia's ranking based on achievements in the measuring of the country's investment environment.

The Slovenian delegation has also met representatives of private financial institutions and investors in Slovenian sovereign bonds. These enquired about the progress in structural reform, fiscal consolidation and privatisation, while they reported on strained conditions in financial markets.

The main part of the regular annual meetings of finance ministers and central bank governors of 188 countries members of the IMF and the World Bank is opening in Lima on Friday focusing on ways to stimulate the anaemic global economic growth.
