Hungary to Start IMF Talks in May If Conditions Met, Hvg.hu Says

The International Monetary Fund is ready to start talks with Hungary on a standby credit line in May if the government meets conditions imposed by the European Commission, Hvg.hu reported.

IMF officials will hold negotiations in Budapest in April as part of a separate review of Hungary’s earlier bailout in 2008, the news website said.

The Washington-based lender has also made “conditional” plans to begin talks on a fresh aid package in May, Hvg.hu said, without citing anyone.
