REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA - The visiting International Monetary Fund (IMF) Managing Director, Christine Lagarde, denies the talk on Indonesia's plan to pour a billion USD loan to IMF. Her visit to Indonesia raises some concerns as Indonesian government plans to give a billion USD or 9.4 trillion IDR loan to IMF.
"We never talk about money," Lagarde said after meeting Indonesian Vice President Boediono on Monday. "I talked about positive, interesting, and productive matters with the vice president. He is very familiar with financial and fiscal issues. He certainly has great level of knowledge. I'm pleased to meet him," she added. Lagarde and Boediono also discussed on Indonesian economy, the impact of global economy, and the European crisis.
