A technical mission of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) will visit Ukraine on 5-13 March, IMF Resident Representative in Ukraine Goesta Ljungman has said.

"A technical team consisting of several IMF specialists will visit Kyiv on 5-13 March to discuss economic developments and the pace of reforms envisaged by the stand-by programme for Ukraine," he said.

Under the new cooperation programme, Ukraine received the first tranche of 1.4bn dollars from the IMF in December 2018.

The National Bank of Ukraine expects two more tranches 1.3bn dollars each in 2019.

The programme is to be reviewed in May and September 2019.
