Georgieva added that although the IMF are putting their best people to work with Lebanon, “It has been a really difficult issue, and the core of the issue is whether there can be unity of purpose in the country that can then carry forward a set of very tough, but necessary measures.”

Georgieva added that although the IMF are putting their best people to work with Lebanon, “It has been a really difficult issue, and the core of the issue is whether there can be unity of purpose in the country that can then carry forward a set of very tough, but necessary measures.”
