No Breakthrough in US-Japan Trade Deal

24 April 2014 12:43:28 Novinite.com (Sofia News Agency)

The United States and Japan have failed to reach a trade deal during the first day of President Barack Obama's visit to the Asian country. The two sides were unable to come closer to the crucial Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact, initiated by Washington, The Japan Times revealed. Japan's Economy Minister Akira Amari, who is leading the negotiations, said on Thursday that "too many issues remained unresolved" and further talks would be needed. However, neither country has come out with an official statement so far. President Obama assured Prime Minister Shinzo Abe that the US remains a strong partner of Japan and urged him to take "bold steps" in moving the trade deal forward. The US head of state will leave Tokyo on Friday. His Far East trip continues with visits to South Korea, Malaysia, and the Philippines.

IMF Mission Recommends USD 17 B Loans to Ukraine

24 April 2014 12:43:28 Novinite.com (Sofia News Agency)

International Monetary Funds officials have recommended that Ukraine be granted a loan worth USD 17 B aimed at helping Kiev to reduce pressure on the economy. The announcement came short after estimates that Ukraine's economy could contract by 5% this year due to February's events, the developments in Crimea and the ongoing unrest in its eastern and southern parts, as Bloomberg has reported. IMF's proposals were revealed by Ukrainian government sources, who were delivered a report by the institution on April 22. According to the cabinet representatives, an IMF board meeting could take place on April 30 to consider the proposal. Conny Lotze, an IMF representative, has however declined to comment on the information. In mid-March, IMF's mission to Kiev struck a standby deal with the interim authorities on between USD 18 B and USD 27 B of aid for the country on the condition of comprehensive political and economic reforms. Ukraine is now in financial turmoil, with an economy threatening to collapse, debt claims by Russia worth billions of USD, and a standoff with pro-Russian separatists who have occupied buildings in a number of towns and cities.
