|Jordan and the IMF|
Updated May 20, 2016
|On September 25, 2015, the Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund discussed the ex-post evaluation of the exceptional access arrangement of Jordan.|
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 consider the publication of the staff report and the related press release.
The last Article IV Executive Board Consultation was on April 28, 2014. Listed below are items related to Jordan, in reverse chronological order (you can also view items by category).
