NNA - Minister of Finance, Dr. Youssef Khalil, on Thursday received the United Nations Special Coordinator for Lebanon, Joanna Wronecka, with whom he discussed financial and economic affairs.
On emerging, Wronecka described the meeting ambiance as very fruitful.
"I would like to express, as usual, the United Nations’ support for Lebanon and affirm at the same time the importance of implementing the financial reforms that we consider very important, as well as the resumption of negotiations with the International Monetary Fund,” Wronecka said.
“I hope that the very ambitious reform plan will be implemented because what is important for us is to see progress and easing the painful hardships on the people, especially with regard to the electricity and fuel sector,” she added.
