    TIRANA, NOV 10 (ATA) - By Arban Hasani: Albania's prime minister Fatos Nano told the parliament on Monday that he had won the first bet of one hundred days.

    [07] GOVERNMENT, IMF ORDER EXTERMINATION OF MONEYLENDER COMPANIES

    TIRANA, NOV 10 (ATA) - By Arban Hasani: The major point of an agreement between the Albanian government with the Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) reached last Friday was the extermination of the Albanian moneylender companies.

    This was declared by the prime minister Fatos Nano in parliament on Monday in a question and answer session for the first one hundred days of his governing.

    The fundamental point of the agreement of November 7, Nano said, is the "creation of a functional market of the agricultural land."

    The agreement with IMF obliged that two out of three existing Albanian banks be privatised and urged normal work for a flexible administration.

    Nano quoted a note of the IMF Executive Board saying that it is enthusiastic "for a categorical refusal on the part of the Albanian government to compensate the money to creditors from public funds."

    The agreement said that "the Board is concerned about the increase of cooperation between the IMF staff with the Albanian government."

    Nano said that such a concern is related to the non repetition of pyramid schemes, which were created as a result of lack of coordination between the IMF and the Albanian previous government.

    The last document, which was not discussed in parliament, urged a categorical closure of a series of Albanian firms, which have been engaged especially in money lending. ssh/kei/ak/k
