“We are not yet at a stage to discuss specific measures under a possible Fund program to support Lebanon. The discussions remain focused on the government’s plan, I have said that here before, the government’s diagnostic and the reforms proposed. Again, these are complex issues, which require consensus on how to address the difficult challenges in an effective and equitable manner. Comprehensive reforms in many areas are needed and these require ownership and consensus from society at large.”
