Over 20 years our cooperation I can only speak highly about those heads of the IMF missions with whom I worked. I hope we will have good relations with you too," the Ukrainian government’s press service quoted Azarov as saying during the meeting with the IMF official on Friday.

During the meeting the officials noted constructive work between the IMF and Ukraine, as well as discussed the current issues of bilateral cooperation.
They also spoke about the instability on foreign markets and its possible effect on Ukraine’s economy. They also discussed the ways to minimize the arising risks.

In turn, Jarvis said that Ukraine had managed to achieve significant progress in structural reforms, recovery of the financial sector and returning public confidence in the banking sector.
