IMF staff regularly produces papers proposing new IMF policies, exploring options for reform, or reviewing existing IMF policies and operations. The following documents have been released and are included in this package:
• A Press Release summarizing the views of the Executive Board as expressed during its September 7, 2018 consideration of the policy report.
• The Policy Report, prepared jointly by IMF and World Bank staff and completed on August 7, 2018 for the Executive Board’s consideration on September 7, 2018.
The IMF’s transparency policy allows for the deletion of market-sensitive information and premature disclosure of the authorities’ policy intentions in published staff reports and other documents.
