Argentina and the IMF
Updated October 12, 2014

On July 12, 2013, the Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund concluded the consideration of the Financial Sector Stability Assessment (FSSA) for Argentina.

The FSSA is a report on the key findings of the financial stability assessment conducted as part of the Financial Sector Assessment Program (FSAP), which is a comprehensive and in-depth assessment of a country's financial sector. In cases where the FSSA is discussed by the Fund's Executive Board outside the context of an Article IV consultation, at the conclusion of the discussion, the Chairperson of the Board summarizes the views of Executive Directors and this summary is transmitted to the country's authorities.

Fund policies and procedures encourage a country to decide in favor of publication, although—in line with these policies—the authorities of a country may choose to not publish the report discussed at the Board. In the case of Argentina, the authorities need more time to consider whether to publish the FSSA.

The last Article IV Executive Board Consultation was on July 28, 2006. Listed below are items related to Argentina, in reverse chronological order (you can also view items by category).
