1 The regional distribution of countries follows the organizational distribution at the IMF.
2 Amounts calculated using the SDR/US$ exchange rate of the day of approval.
3 Aggregate US$ amounts are presented for illustrative purposes.
4 The countries listed in the table are those that will benefit from the first tranche of CCRT debt service relief for debt service falling due during the period April 13 through October 13, 2020. Chad is not listed since it does not have debt service to the IMF falling due during this period.
