    [03] IMF team visits Cyprus to scrutinize solvency law

    An International Monetary Fund team of experts is visiting Cyprus to scrutinize the Cypriot solvency law.

    A reliable source told CNA that the team arrived in Cyprus on Monday and will meet all stakeholders for one week, in a bid to scrutinize the Cypriot solvency law and provide recommendations for amendments.

    The team is on the island following the conclusion of the second review of the Cypriot adjustment programme. Amid the continued economic downturn, the main source of concern over the Cypriot banking sector is the rise of the Non-Performing Loans, estimated at 30% of total loans until March 2013.
