IMF in town


A TEAM FROM the Washington-based International Monetary Fund (IMF) is in Barbados.

And yesterday, before Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler met with top officials of the private sector about controversial aspects of his 2017 Budget, he and others in the ministry met with a five-member IMF team led by Judith Gold, the Fund’s deputy division chief for the Western Hemisphere Department.   

When approached following their session at Government Headquarters, members of the team would only say it “was a courtesy visit”, while Gold declined to speak on the nature of their talks. (GE)
