December 18, 2001 -- Transcript of a Press Conference on the interim World Economic Outlook
I'm only going to give a few brief opening remarks, and I'm going to show a few slides. Normally we publish a World Economic Outlook only twice a year, but in times where there's been very rapid change in economic events or turmoil in the global economy, we come out with an interim WEO. We felt the recent situation certainly qualified, and we have written what you have before you.
November 01, 2001 -- Transcript of a Press Briefing by Thomas C. Dawson, Director, External Relations Department, IMF
Now, before we get to questions, I suspect a number of you may be interested in the preparations and arrangements for the IMFC meetings in Ottawa in a couple of weeks. We expect the Canadian authorities to post on the G-20 website the press accreditation material for the meetings on Monday, November 5th, and the Fund and the Bank will jointly post a press advisory alongside them. If you have any questions, I would ask that you follow up with Media Relations Division later on.
November 01, 2001 -- Transcript of an IMF Economic Forum -- Anticipating Crises: Model Behavior or Stampeding Herds
Predicting crises through early warning systems is something that is intellectually challenging, to put it mildly.
October 17, 2001 -- Transcript of a Press Briefing by Thomas Dawson, Director, External Relations Department, IMF
. I think it should not be any particular news that we have been looking and are looking at having an IMFC meeting as soon as it can be arranged, and I think they are on the right track, even though they don't seem to have too many specifics.
September 28, 2001 -- Transcript of a Press Briefing by Thomas C. Dawson, Director, External Relations Department, IMF
The only announcement I have to make before taking questions is a somewhat unusual one. After a gap of 16 years, the Fund is about to publish the latest volume of the official history of the Fund. On October 9th it will come out. This is a series started in the 1960s. This latest volume covers the 1980s, and historically, these histories compensated for some of the secrecy in which the Fund often did its business. Now, of course, we're much more open and so, too, is our approach to history.

November 08, 2000 -- Transcript of Economic Forum -- One World, One Currency: Destination or Delusion? November 8, 2000
The title of this panel harks back to a publication of the European Union or the Commission, a report which was, if my memory serves, called One Market, One Money. And in fact it is the creation of that one money in Europe, the euro, that makes today's topic particularly relevant.
September 20, 2000 -- Transcript of a Press Conference by The Managing Director of the IMF Prior to the 2000 Annual Meetings
My vision of the IMF is founded on two major challenges: first, to adjust the Fund to the changes in global financial markets and focus on its core responsibilities in this context and, second, to make the Fund an active and efficient part of the team to make globalization work for the benefit of all.
September 19, 2000 -- Transcript of a Press Conference on the IMF's World Economic Outlook
The world economy in the first year of the new millennium is enjoying the strongest growth in more than a decade and, despite recent increases in oil prices that have kicked up headline inflation rates in industrial countries, on the whole inflation in the world economy remains very well contained.
September 14, 2000 -- Transcript of a Press Conference on the IMF's 2000 Annual Report
Last year our lending dropped very sharply as a result of the calmer conditions in emerging markets and the rapid improvements in several of the crisis countries. We loaned 6.3b SDRs last year -- that is, in our regular loans, not our concessional loans -- and that is less than one-third of what we had done in the previous fiscal year.
June 13, 2000 -- Transcript of a Press Briefing by Thomas Dawson, Director, IMF External Relations Department
There will be a number of events, meetings and so on, that the Fund management and staff will be having in anticipation and in the run-up to the Annual Meetings, particularly what I think I would describe as outreach, both with nongovernmental organizations and civil society, but also with media events in the three months prior, running up to the meetings.
May 25, 2000 -- Transcript of a Press Briefing by IMF Managing Director Horst Köhler
I thought I should meet with you, not in a very prepared manner or with a statement, but really reporting a bit out from the workshop of the IMF. The IMF has a lot of construction sites, and I am meeting you within this process. So for three weeks now I have been in the Fund.
April 13, 2000 -- Transcript of an IMF Press Conference on Exchange Rate Regimes in an Increasingly Integrated World Economy
The background to this study is the renewed interest in the issue of appropriated exchange rate arrangements, prompted by the currency and payments crises of the 1990s; the general increase in capital mobility and the boom-bust character that we sometimes see involving capital flows to developing countries.
April 12, 2000 -- Transcript of a Press Conference on the April 2000 World Economic Outlook
This is the first press briefing of the 2000 Spring Meetings, which is the press briefing on the April 2000 Report on the World Economic Outlook.
March 14, 2000 -- Transcript of a Press Briefing by Thomas Dawson, Director, External Relations Department

September 25, 1997 -- Press Conference by Michel Camdessus, Managing Director
You have possibly heard or read my concluding remarks at the Annual Meeting this morning.
