FinMin: Fifth tranche of IMF loan disbursed to Romania on June 28
At the end of June, the IMF will unlock the money to Romania and it will flow directly to the National Bank of Romania (BNR); the EU tranche, which is due in later, will be directed to the Ministry of Finance. The EUR 20 billion financial assistance package to Romania is supported by the IMF (12.9 billion euros), the European Commission (five billion euros), the World Bank (one billion euros) and other international lenders.
So far, Romania received almost 9.3 billion euros from the IMF, 2.5 billion euros from the EU and 300 million euros from the WB. The IMF Board might discuss the fourth report on Romania’s economic program in the second half of June. If the report is approved, Romania will receive the fifth tranche worth 768 million SDR (0.85 billion euros) of the IMF loan.
