Christine Lagarde, the managing director of the International Monetary Fund, will be visiting Jamaica later this month.

Lagarde and an IMF delegation will visit the country on June 27, the Ministry of Finance announced this week.

Lagarde’s visit will include a meeting with Jamaica Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller, Finance Minister Dr Peter Phillips and other senior government officials.

Lagarde will also participate in what the government described in a statement as “outreach activities” before departing on June 28.

The Ministry of Finance said Lagarde’s visit “underscores the Fund’s support for Jamaica’s Economic Reform Programme (ERP), and signals its commitment to assisting the wider Caribbean.”

An IMF concluded a review mission to Jamaica last month.
