In response to the IMF’s announcement that it will revive Afghanistan’s credit programme, UK’s Secretary of State for International Development Andrew Mitchell said:

“This decision shows that the Afghan Government has made progress in reassuring international donors and ordinary Afghans alike that they are serious about providing a safe economic and business environment, and marks an important step forward on the path to transition to Afghan control.
“But the fight to tackle corruption does not end here. I urge the Government of Afghanistan to continue with this programme of reforms. The UK will continue to support the Government’s efforts and help to provide a brighter future for all Afghans.”
