IMF reach compromise over central bank law changes

INDONESIA - Indonesia appears to be making some headway in its efforts to get fresh loans from the International Monetary Fund.

The IMF says there has been sufficient compromise to break a six-month loan stalemate. But it adds it could take several months to reach agreement with Indonesia over content ious central bank law changes.

IMF senior representative in Jakarta, John Dodsworth, says a middle ground has been reached over Indonesia's willingness to delay the controversial amendments.
