IMF mission may visit Turkey in mid-May for article IV consultations.

By bne IntelliNews April 2, 2010
IMF spokesman Gerry Rice told a press briefing that an mission, led by country desk chief Rachle van Elkan, may visit Turkey for the article IV consultations in mid-May but no certain date has been set yet. In response to a question whether the local authorities and the Fund would restart talks for a stand-by deal, Rice said that the focus right now was on the article consultations. Recall that last month, the government and the Fund decided to call off talks for a possible stand-by agreement.
