Press Release: IMF Begins Publishing Executive Board's Weekly Calendar
February 9, 2004
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) began today the regular publication of a weekly calendar of its 24-member Executive Board to enhance public access to information about the operations of the 184-member Fund. The Executive Board is responsible for overseeing the day-to-day activities of the Fund on behalf of its member countries.
The weekly calendar, which will be updated on a rolling basis, contains the tentative schedule of formal meetings and Board seminars. The Board's agenda is typically finalized the day prior to each meeting, so the calendar is therefore tentative. Nevertheless, the calendar provides the latest available information on the Executive Board's scheduled activities.
To view the calendar, visit the IMF's website at: http://www.imf.org/external/np/sec/bc/eng/index.asp.
The Executive Board approved the release of its calendar as part of the latest review of the IMF's transparency policy, which was completed in September 2003 (See Public Information Notice No. 03/122).
