|April 01, 2008 -- Issues Brief - Reform of IMF Quotas and Voice: Responding to Changes in the Global Economy|
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.

And a new consultative approach has been proposed to address global problems that require collective action by many countries - the first such multilateral consultation has begun and will focus on narrowing global trade imbalances.
