|Ecuador and the IMF|
Updated August 16, 2016
On July 8, 2016, the Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) approved a disbursement under the Rapid Financing Instrument (RFI) for Ecuador for an amount equivalent to SDR 261.63 million. The Board’s discussion was based on a staff report prepared by a staff team of the IMF, following discussions with the officials of Ecuador on economic developments and policies underpinning the Rapid Financing Instrument.
On July 8, 2016, the Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund concluded the consideration of the 2016 Article IV consultation of Ecuador.
Under Article IV of its Articles of Agreement, the IMF has a mandate to exercise surveillance over the economic, financial and exchange rate policies of its members in order to ensure the effective operation of the international monetary system. The IMF’s appraisal of such policies involves a comprehensive analysis of the general economic situation and policy strategy of each member country. IMF economists visit the member country, usually once a year, to collect and analyze data and hold discussions with government and central bank officials. Upon its return, the staff submits a report to the IMF’s Executive Board for discussion. The Board’s views are subsequently summarized and transmitted to the country authorities.
The authorities have consented to publication and it is expected that the staff report will be posted on this website shortly.
The authorities need more time to consider the publication of the staff report and the related press release.
The last Article IV Executive Board Consultation was on July 08, 2016. Listed below are items related to Ecuador, in reverse chronological order (you can also view items by category).
