IMF experts to visit the country as a part of regular consultations for the year 2009.
The International Monetary Fund is visiting UAE to review the shape of the economy and conclude regular 2009 consultations, the IMF said in a statement on Thursday.
IMF experts were in the UAE already in October, before Dubai's debt crisis came to the fore, for routine "Article IV" consultations about the state of the economy.
"An IMF staff team is visiting UAE to review with the authorities recent economic developments and conclude the 2009 Article IV consultation discussion, as part of the normal interaction between the IMF and its member states," the fund said.
