International Monetary Fund (IMF)




The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is an international organization of 188 countries, working to foster global monetary cooperation, secure financial stability, facilitate international trade, and promote high employment and sustainable economic growth. The IMF supports its membership by providing: policy advice to governments and central banks; research, statistics, forecasts, and analysis; loans to help countries overcome economic difficulties; and technical assistance and training to officials to help countries improve the management of their economies.

The Institute for Capacity Development oversees the IMF training program on topics spanning macroeconomic analysis, monetary and fiscal policy, macro-financial linkages, balance of payments issues, financial markets and institutions, as well as statistical and legal frameworks in these areas.

The IMF’s online learning program receives generous financial support from the Government of Belgium.
