WASHINGTON - The International Monetary Fund's board on Wednesday gave the nod to a $78 million disbursal to Bosnia, saying the country was on track with most of the conditions of its stand-by loan.

"The Fund-supported program continues to provide a valuable anchor for economic policy amid a difficult external and domestic environment," the IMF's deputy managing director Minouche Shafik said in a statement after the fund's first review of the program.

The IMF also gave Bosnia's central government a waiver for not meeting its fiscal deficit target by the end of September.
