A technical mission from the International Monetary Fund
(IMF) will visit Egypt soon, Minister of Planning Ashraf al-Araby said Tuesday.
Al-Araby said the IMF mission will hold talks on an amended economic program by
the Egyptian government.
No date has yet been set for the visit, the minister said.
Al-Araby denied rumors that the IMF has refused to give Egypt a loan.
The IMF has offered Egypt emergency funding until it implements the reforms necessary
to secure the larger $4.8 billion package.
