The Governor of the Central Bank of Libya, Siddiq Al-Kabir, held a meeting with the Executive Office of the International Monetary Fund in Washington D.C. on Monday.

A statement published by the Central Bank’s Facebook page stated that the focus of Al-Kabir’s discussions with the IMF were “efforts to maintain financial and monetary stability, the path of unifying the Central Bank, in addition to the technical and advisory support programs from the International Monetary Fund.”

Al-Kabir is currently on a visit to the United States to is discuss economic reform in Libya.

On February 28, the US ambassador to Libya, Richard Norland, expressed his support for the visit, which he said would witness “important consultations” with “senior” US officials.

Al-Kabir and Norland agreed, during a meeting in Tunisia on the same day, "on the importance of the independence of sovereign institutions and regular payment of salaries and basic expenses for the benefit of the Libyan people."
