Exchange rate surveillance has always been at the core of the IMF’s responsibilities. Throughout its existence, the Fund has strived to strengthen its framework for assessing exchange rates, adapting it to underlying macroeconomic and financial developments in member countries. As part of this mandate, since the mid-1990s the Consultative Group on Exchange Rate Issues (CGER) has provided exchange rate assessments for a number of advanced economies from a multilateral perspective, with the aim of informing the country-specific analysis of Article IV Staff Reports and fostering multilateral consistency.
