LONDON, March 31 (Reuters) - Billionaire investor George Soros said on Tuesday Eastern Europe was a “prime candidate” for International Monetary Fund (IMF) support.
Speaking at the London School of Economic ahead of the G20 summit, Soros said: “G20 should not just provide pious words but should take steps to stabilise periphery countries.”
Last week Soros told the Times that it was "conceivable" for Britain to seek help from the IMF. (For the Hedge Hub blog, visit: blogs.reuters.com/hedgehub/)) (Reporting by Cecilia Valente)
