Washington, DC --- 4 February 2020
2. Wide shot virtual news conference
3. SOUNDBITE: (English) Gerry Rice, IMF Spokesman:
“We are, of course, very concerned about the impact of recent events and what they could have on the people of Myanmar.
And we're watching it very closely, of course, like the rest of the world. Just to remind you that, of course, Myanmar faced large economic and social costs as a result of the pandemic. And the IMF resources are our support to help the people of Myanmar to meet these urgent humanitarian needs. That was that was the whole purpose.
Again, just to set in context, the approval of this support was back in January by our board and followed all standard procedures for this kind of emergency financing, the same as we have been, we've done for another eighty-four countries in this in this crisis. And standard safeguards in place regarding the resources, including the repayment schedule. And as I think you know, the IMF record over 75 years on repayment and safeguarding of the IMF resources is very clear.”
