|Vietnam and the IMF|
Updated October 9, 2015
|On July 30, 2014, the Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) concluded the Article IV consultation with Vietnam, and considered and endorsed the staff appraisal without a meeting. (The Executive Board takes decisions without a meeting (based on lapse-of-time procedures) when it is agreed by the Board that a proposal can be considered without convening formal discussions.) |
Under Article IV of the IMF's 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. A staff team visits the country, collects economic and financial information, and discusses with officials the country's economic developments and policies. On return to headquarters, the staff prepares a report, which forms the basis for consideration by the Executive Board.
The Vietnam authorities need more time to consider the publication of the staff report.
The last Article IV Executive Board Consultation was on June 24, 2013. Listed below are items related to Vietnam, in reverse chronological order (you can also view items by category).
