During his visit to Istanbul, Hakimi led a delegation of Ministry of Finance and Da Afghanistaninfo-icon Bank officials at the meeting with the IMF mission team on the economic reform agenda.

A statement from the ministry said that issues related to national printing companies, IMF mission and the country partnership framework were discussed at the Feb. 23 meeting.
