JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) _ A high-level International Monetary Fund delegation arrived in Indonesia on Sunday, and officials said they are optimistic about restoring a $5 billion lending program.

``I am hopeful after this visit we can sign a letter of intent,'' said Anoop Singh, IMF's Asia-Pacific deputy director.

The IMF hopes finalize with Indonesian authorities a letter of intent which would detail economic reforms the country would have to undertake in return for IMF balance-of-payments support.

The IMF suspended its Indonesian program in December after the country fell behind on a number of reforms, including promises to sell assets from its ailing banking system. The IMF mission this week will evaluate Indonesia's progress in speeding up reforms.
