IMF 'Not in a Position to Impose Policies' on Greece, Rice Says

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is not in a position to impose policies on Greece, IMF spokesperson Gerry Rice said on Thursday. He was commenting on a decision by the Eurogroup Working Group (EWG) in Brussels to go along with plans to scrap pension cuts that had been scheduled to take effect at the start of 2019. According to Rice, it was an issue that exclusively concerned the Greek government and Greece's European partners since the IMF no longer has a programme in Greece and is not a party to the details of the discussions underway. Asked to comment on the IMF's role in the post-programme surveillance of Greece, he clarified that the Fund was involved in a strictly advisory capacity and noted that the IMF "does not impose policies on our members".
