Christine Lagarde heads the IMF. Lagarde said Thursday the IMF is waiting to see the outcome of measures to raise government revenues before it can determine the size of any shortfall in funding. Measures include tax collection and privatization of state-owned enterprises.
She also says the IMF is ruling out any further austerity measures that would require across-the-board cuts in wages or pensions in Greece.
Lagarde spoke at a news conference in Washington during meetings of the IMF and World Bank.
