Description of the Subject: International Monetary Fund.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is an organisation of 189 countries, working to:

  1. Promote the global monetary cooperation
  2. Secure financial stability
  3. Make easy the international trade
  4. Promote high employment and sustainable economic growth, and
  5. reduce the poverty

The International Monetary Fund is uniquely placed to help governments of the IMF members to take advantage of the opportunities and manage the defiance posed by globalisation and economic development.

The International Monetary Fund tracks global economic trends, and efficiency alerts its member countries when it sees troubles on the horizon, provides a forum for policy dialogue, and passes on know-how to governments on how to tackle economic difficulties.

Helping a nation benefit from globalisation while averting potential downsides is an important task for the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

The global economic crisis has highlighted just how interconnected countries have become in the world economy.

To become an IMF member, a nation must apply and then be accepted by a majority of the existing members.

The SDR (Special Drawing Rights) is an international reserve asset, created by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in 1969 to supplement its member countries' official reserves. Its value is based on a basket of four key international currencies, and Special Drawing Rights can be exchanged for freely usable currencies.
