IMF approves €657 million bailout tranche for Portugal

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) approved the seventh tranche of Portugal’s bailout Wednesday and gave the country more time to meet its budget-cutting goals. The IMF will disburse the next tranche worth €657 million after the successful review of a bailout program that started in 2011. Meanwhile, the fund eased conditions, allowing Portugal to lower its budget deficit to 3% of GDP by 2015 from 6.4% in 2012, instead of by 2014. “The Portuguese authorities have put forward a program that is economically well-balanced and has growth and job creation at its center”, IMF acting Managing Director John Lipsky wrote in a statement.
