IMF Article VI

Why is Government not responding to IMF report?

Institute of National Affairs executive director, Paul Barker made this comment after the PNG National Government have not yet responded to the IMF Article IV which was released in November 2016.

However, Prime Minister Peter O’Neill told Loop PNG that, the report is still with the Treasury Department for deliberation.

“It is my understanding that IMF mission report is being still discussed between Treasury and IMF because of some discrepancies.”

“The report has not reached NEC and therefore cannot comment any further,” O’Neill said.
