Checks will cover funds borrowed as credits (loans) from international financial organisations and credits (loans) from foreign governments, banks and firms. It was pointed out at the meeting that the aim is to check the implementation of a project to expand the credit portfolio and also projects "for a loan to support a social protection reform" and "support for reform in the electrical power sector".
