Most respondents in an email poll conducted by the Business Times this week said both the IMF and the EU were justified in their separate decisions to withhold loan disbursements and suspend GSP+ concessions.
They were responding to two questions posed by the newspaper asking - (a) Is there any justification in the IMF delaying the third instalment (of its $2.6 billion loan? and (b) Is there any justification in the EU suspending GSP +?
The poll among 250 respondents drawn from the public and private sectors, civil society and the public, showed that 74 % justified the decision in the IMF case while 60 % agreed on the GSP + suspension issue.
