The Executive Council of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) will meet in the coming weeks to discuss the situation in Venezuela, a spokesman said today.
In mid-December, the IMF said it was examining the data transmitted by Venezuela, after months trying to get economic data from the country.
"We hope that our Council will meet again to discuss this issue in the coming weeks" to assess the situation, taking into account the new data, "said spokesman Gerry Rice.
The International Monetary Fund ordered Caracas, in May, to provide reliable economic data and to exert pressure by issuing a declaration of censorship against the country for failing to meet its obligations to the agency.
