The IMF team, led by Christoph Klingen of the fund's European Department, will be working in the country until May 15.

The fund's experts, who arrive in Lithuania biannually, will analyze the country's macroeconomic situation and will assess its general economic development patterns, the situation in the financial sector and the implementation of social policy measures.

Meetings are scheduled with officials from the central Bank of Lithuania, the Finance Ministry and other state institutions, as well as representatives of the private sector.

Lithuania has been a member of the IMF since 1992. The fund currently has 189 member countries.
