Suriname and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) are going to work together again.

 

The new Surinam government has also tightened ties with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).

According to Minister of Finance and Planning Armand Achaibersing, the talks with international organizations have been in a cordial atmosphere, he said on the Surinamese radio.

Both organizations have promised the minister that Suriname can count on their support.

Cooperation with the IMF should help the country to recover economically, and the IDB will primarily help in tackling the corona crisis.

President Chan Santokhi and his government are facing significant financial problems left by the government of Desi Bouterse.

For example, there is a debt of almost 2 billion euros, and many Surinamese have a hard time because the local Surinamese dollar has fallen sharply.
