"When we reach agreement with the IMF on provisions (of the pension reform - Ed.), we are going to pass them the bill for review. They should check whether the norms used in the bill are in line with our prior agreements," the minister told journalists after the Cabinet meeting on Wednesday, Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.
He noted that the basic provisions of the reform had been agreed upon with the IMF, but the technical matters were still to be harmonized.
"The bill is ready," the minister said.
According to Reva, intense negotiations on pension reform had been held until late last week while the Fund's mission was in Ukraine and an agreement was reached to complete the harmonization via videoconferencing.
The social policy minister earlier announced the intention of the Cabinet to present the draft pension reform at the Verkhovna Rada meeting before May 16.
