Colombia can led to the IMF, says Christine Lagarde

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Colombia's economy is so strong that it is in a position to lend money to the International Monetary Fund rather than borrow, said the director of the IMF on Monday.

"Colombia is in a situation where it can offer support to the IMF, which has not happened in the past. Colombia has enjoyed a macroeconomic policy that has given a lot of stability to the country," said Christine Lagarde, who is currently on a brief tour of Latin America.

"Colombia now has a very small deficit and a balanced debt and because of this their macroeconomic situation is very promising," said the IMF Director who also stated that Colombia's economy is currently doing better than the global economy.
