Mwanakatwe Encourages Staff to Prepare for IMF Deal


Finance Minister Margaret Mwanakatwe has directed officials in the Ministry of Finance to implement a well-structured engagement strategy and clean up all the required data sets in preparation for Article 4 consultations with the International Monetary Fund to be held towards the end of the current fiscal quarter.

Mrs. Mwanakatwe also said the targets set by the government in the Economic Stabilisation and Growth Programme and the 2019 National Budget will be a challenge to fully achieve unless the Ministry of Finance improves its service delivery levels.

The Minister was speaking during the senior management annual visioning and milestone setting seminar on economic policy, fiscal affairs and financial management, held at the ministry’s headquarters in Lusaka.
