On March 28, 2008, the Executive Board of the IMF endorsed a major package of reforms that will enhance the institution's governance. Once approved by the Fund's Board of Governors (they are expected to cast their votes by April 28), the agreement will adjust quota shares to better reflect the relative weight of member countries in the world economy, particularly that of dynamic emerging countries. It will also enhance the voice and representation of low-income countries within the IMF.

In September 2005, the IMF embarked on a wide-ranging program of modernization called the Medium-Term Strategy. One important element of the Strategy is governance reform, including adjusting quota shares to reflect better the relative weight of members in the world economy and enhancing the voice and participation of low-income members within the institution. This reform is critical for the continued effectiveness of the Fund.
