KIEV, April 10 The IMF will continue talks with
Ukraine on a $15 billion stand-by loan in the coming weeks after
a series of "productive discussions", the Fund's mission said on
Wednesday as it concluded a visit to Kiev.
"The key building blocks of a new programme would be
measures to reduce Ukraine's fiscal and external current account
deficits, and energy sector and banking reforms, in order to
create the conditions for sustained economic growth and job
creation in Ukraine," mission head Chris Jarvis said in a
"The mission made good progress in discussing these issues,
and our dialogue will continue in the coming weeks."
