Ukraine and the IMF
Updated April 15, 2014

On December 16, 2013, the Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) concluded the 2013 Article IV consultation and the first Post Program Monitoring Review, as well as the Ex-Post Evaluation of Exceptional Access under the 2010 Stand-By Arrangement with Ukraine.

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’s authorities.

Post-Program Monitoring provides for closer monitoring (usually twice a year) of the circumstances and policies of members whose Fund-supported program has expired but that continue to have significant Fund credit outstanding. It is intended to provide an early warning of policies which could call into question a member’s continued progress toward external viability and thus could imperil Fund resources, and a mechanism for bringing this to the attention of the country’s authorities and the Executive Board and stimulating action to improve the situation.

In 2002, the IMF Executive Board decided to conduct ex-post evaluations of arrangements involving exceptional access to the Fund’s General Resource Account. The purpose of these evaluations, which have to be completed within one year of the end of the arrangement, is to provide a critical and frank discussion of whether justifications presented at the outset of the arrangement—including the justification for exceptional access—were consistent with Fund policies and to review performance under the Fund supported program. A staff team prepares a report that is discussed with the country’s authorities and presented to the Executive Board for discussion.

The authorities need more time to conclude their consideration of the two staff reports - on the 2013 Article IV/Post-Program Monitoring and on the Ex-Post Evaluation of Exceptional Access under the 2010 Stand-By Arrangement with Ukraine.

The last Article IV Executive Board Consultation was on December 16, 2013. Listed below are items related to Ukraine, in reverse chronological order (you can also view items by category).

April 15, 2003 -- IMF Staff Papers - Volume 50, Number 1, 2003 - Ownership Concentration and Performance in Ukraine's Privatized Enterprises by Alexander Pivovarsky
This article investigates empirically the relationship between ownership concentration and performance in 376 partially and fully privatized Ukrainian enterprises. It finds that ownership concentration is positively associated with enterprise performance in Ukraine. The article also finds that concentration of ownership by foreign companies and banks is associated with better performance than ownership concentrated by the domestic owners. Ownership by Ukrainian investment funds and holding companies does not have a positive effect on performance. The article documents that, in contrast to predictions by many observers of early transition, privatization methods determined the long-term ownership structure of privatized firms.
