Today Economic and Monetary Affairs Commissioner Olli Rehn signed a new Supplemental Memorandum of Understanding (SMoU) between the EU and Latvia on continuing the EU programme of financial assistance to Latvia. Following the signature of the SMoU by Latvian counterparties last week, this paves the way for the next EU disbursement of up to EUR 200 million expected in September 2010.
The SMoU follows a positive assessment of the implementation of the Programme conditions undertaken by the Commission during the third review mission in cooperation with the IMF and other lenders from 25 May to 7 June 2010.
