December 16, 2011

Dec. 15 (Bloomberg) -- Euro-area finance ministers may meet Dec. 19 to discuss country contributions to the International Monetary Fund, Dutch Finance Minister Jan Kees de Jager said.

“We don’t yet know the exact amounts, that is being discussed now in the euro working group,” De Jager told parliament in The Hague today. “Maybe there is a euro group on Monday” and after that we’ll know the exact contributions.

De Jager told parliament he expects the Netherlands to contribute around 14 billion euros, with a maximum of 17 billion euros, to help the IMF fight Europe’s debt crisis.
