Welcome to the pre-IMFC press conference.
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.
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.
September 24, 2001 -- Transcript of a Briefing with Journalists By Anne Krueger, First Deputy Managing Director, IMF
Based on now, which is to say, no more negative surprises and so on, it's very hard to see very much medium-term macroeconomic impact after the initial bout of whatever has happened as a result of September 11th happens.
September 19, 2001 -- Transcript of a Briefing with Journalists By Horst Köhler, Managing Director, IMF
I sense here a strong feeling in this institution that even more after this attack, there is a need for cooperation, international cooperation, and we do think that in this institution we have a lot of common ground for this cooperation.
August 29, 2000 -- Transcript of a Press Briefing by Thomas Dawson, Director, IMF External Relations Department
