Aug 31 (Reuters) - The International Monetary Fund said on Wednesday that it would "be in a position" to lift its censure on Argentina later this year after recent changes the country has made to the way it reports official economic data.

"The executive board noted the authorities' extraordinary efforts and important progress made in strengthening the accuracy of Argentina's statistics," the IMF said in a statement. (Reporting by Rosalba O'Brien; Editing by Bill Rigby)
