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

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

Helping a nation benefit from the Globalization while averting the potential downsides is an important task of the IMF.

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

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