Green Climate Fund and attend a signing ceremony with Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Hyun on Korea's contribution to the IMF's capacity building program.

Finally, Ms. Lagarde will travel to Myanmar on December 6-7 to meet with the country authorities, including Vice-President Nyan Tun, Minister of Finance and Revenue U Win Shein and Central Bank of Myanmar Governor U Kyaw Kyaw Maung.
