Argentina and the IMF
Updated October 9, 2015

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).

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.
December 13, 2001 -- Transcript of an IMF Economic Forum -- Transparency at the International Monetary Fund: The Road Ahead

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 07, 2001 -- Transcript of a Press Briefing by Thomas Dawson, Director, External Relations Department, IMF
This year's meetings are fast approaching. We've taken steps to consolidate the meetings. These steps were driven by concern about the safety of the people attending the meeting, the safety of the local community, and while we fully understand the long tradition of peaceful demonstrations in the nation's capital and elsewhere, we do urge people, who intend to exercise their right to protest, to also understand that there are valid security concerns.
