IMF delegation to arrive in Zagreb Wednesday for 5-day visit

Representatives of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), led by new Croatia mission head, Khaled Sakr, are scheduled to arrive in Zagreb for a five-day working visit aimed at updating projections for Croatia's economic and finance sector, the Croatian National Bank (HNB) reported on Tuesday.

During the visit, scheduled to start on Wednesday, February 17, the IMF delegation will hold talks with representatives of the central bank and the Finance Ministry, as well as some other ministries and institutions.

They are expected to discuss the current economic and financial situation in Croatia, economic projections and the 2016 budget.

This visit was announced at the end of January when the new mission head, Sakr, and former mission head Johannes Wiegand visited Croatia. Sakr and Wiegand then talked to Prime Minister Tihomir Oreskovic, Finance Minister Zdravko Maric and central bank governor Boris Vujcic.
