IMF Frees Funds to Kyrgyzstan

The International Monetary Fund will release around USD100 million for Kyrgyzstan under an 18-month Exogenous Shocks Facility deal. The assistance will help the Central Asian nation cope with the increase in commodity prices until mid-2008, hydropower deficit, banking sector constraints and an earthquake in the Nura region. Of the sum, about USD25 million will be disbursed immediately.
