Ms. Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), will visit Phnom Penh, Cambodia, on December 2-3, and Seoul, Korea, on December 4-5, followed by Nay Pyi Taw and Yangon, Myanmar, on December 6-7.

"I am very much looking forward to my first trip to Cambodia, Korea, and Myanmar as Managing Director of the IMF. I will visit three countries in different stages of transition - Korea, the world's 13th largest economy; Cambodia, a frontier economy on the rise; and Myanmar, undergoing a great awakening to countless possibilities," Ms. Lagarde said.

On December 2-3, Ms. Lagarde will be in Cambodia, where she is expected to meet King Sihamoni, as well as Prime Minister Hun Sen, Deputy Prime Minister Keat Chhon, and other senior government officials. She will also speak to students of the Royal School of Administration, and exchange views with women business leaders and policy makers as well as think tank and private sector representatives.

On December 4-5, Ms. Lagarde will visit Korea to meet with President Park Geun-hye, Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Hyun Oh-seok, and Bank of Korea Governor Kim Choongsoo. She will also meet with women leaders, and address students at a town hall meeting at Seoul National University. In addition, she will participate in the inauguration of the Headquarters of the U.N. 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. She is also scheduled to have a meeting with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. She will conclude her visit to Myanmar by participating in the Myanmar Women's Forum to highlight the role of women in the economy and will also speak to students at the Yangon Institute of Economics.
