Reaction to IMF report

Minister of Finance, Johan Van Overtveldt:

“Following the positive analysis performed by the National Bank in the course of last week, this report is once again a highlight.    The IMF values the corporate income tax reform.   The Monetary Fund can clearly see a positive momentum, which is partly due to the extensive reforms that achieve their intended effects.

Positive evolutions are reconfirmed: more growth, more purchasing power and budgetary improvement.  The analyses and recommendations must inspire us to continue these reforms.”
