INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND (IMF)

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
The IMF is an international organization of 184 member countries. It was established to promote international monetary cooperation, exchange stability, and orderly exchange arrangements; to foster economic growth and high levels of employment; and to provide temporary financial assistance to countries to help ease balance of payments adjustment.

Since the IMF was established its purposes have remained unchanged but its operations — which involve surveillance, financial assistance, and technical assistance –have developed to meet the changing needs of its member countries in an evolving world economy.
