The early signs coming from Ukraine's new government are "very encouraging" one of the International Monetary Fund's top officials said on Friday (April 6).

"We think the signs of the new government's willingness to adhere to the programme, to stay with the programme and their own adjustment efforts are very encouraging," Pradhan told a news conference.

"We hope the programme will be on track and most importantly, the adjustment policies already implemented which are paying dividends and are working, will continue", he noted.

The IMF is due in Ukraine next week to formally review whether progress has been made with its .5 billion aid-for-reforms programme.

Pradhan said it was too early to say how long the process would take.
