Following the meeting, the IMF Managing Director told KUNA and KTV that he was very glad to meet the parliamentary delegation from Kuwait, affirming that it was a "very nice" meeting.

He added that the talks focused on the reform program, which the Kuwaiti government started and the "need" to continue these "necessary" reforms.

He affirmed that the Kuwait authorities had a "very good" start with these reform programs and "we agreed that it continues along those lines". Speaker Al-Ghanim is in Washington to partake in the Global Parliamentary Conference, slated for April 17-18.
