The International Monetary Fund lowered the inflation forecast for Ukraine in 2009 from 16% to 13%.
The prime minister Yulia Timoshenko reported about it, making comments on Friday on results of negotiations with mission of the IMF in Ukraine.
"Inflation will be less, than it was expected in connection with world financial crisis. If previously the forecast made, 16%, now 13%", - told Tymoshenko.
"I want to support also words of madam Pazarbaziolu that the economic and financial situation in Ukraine is adequate to a world situation with an economic crisis", - she added.
According to her, as a result of negotiations the anti-recessionary program which will be carried out within cooperation with the IMF was modified.
"We developed the modified anti-recessionary program which, on the one hand, is not really popular for politicians as it provides both budget cut in expenditure, and rigid balancing of the budget, and balancing of NAK of "Naftogaz". But, on the other hand, it is the only way for Ukraine that it had opportunity to pass crisis", - the prime minister assured.
Tymoshenko promised that soon the parliament and the government will approve the necessary decision that the program was carried out.
"I am convinced that this program on which we agreed, it will be carried out by Ukraine. And if it is carried out, the board of directors which will gather soon, will make the decision to allocate the third tranche of the credit to Ukraine", - the prime minister assured.
