IMF Article IV Staff Reports

Article IV consultations usually take place once a year. IMF economists visit the member country to gather information and hold discussions with government and central bank officials, and often private investors and labor representatives, members of parliament, and civil society organizations. Upon its return, the mission submits a report to the IMF’s Executive Board for discussion. The Board’s views are subsequently summarized and transmitted to the country’s authorities. Currently, nine out of ten member countries agree to publication of a Press Release, which summarizes the staff’s and the Board’s views, and four out of five countries agree to publication of the staff report itself. The country reports are listed below.
