Letter of Transmittal to Members and Governors of the Fund
June 19, 1989
I have the honor to transmit to you a copy of the International Monetary Fund’s Annual Report on Exchange Arrangements and Exchange Restrictions, 1989, which has been prepared in accordance with the provisions of Article XIV, Section 3 of the Articles of Agreement.
On behalf of the Executive Board, I should like to express our appreciation of the cooperation of the countries in the preparation of the Report.
Chairman of the Executive Board and Managing Director
Note: The term “country,” as used in this publication, does not in all cases refer to a territorial entity that is a state as understood by international law and practice; the term also covers some territorial entities that are not states but for which statistical data are maintained and provided internationally on a separate and independent basis.
The Annual Report on Exchange Arrangements and Exchange Restrictions has been published annually by the Fund since 1950. It draws on information available to the Fund from a number of sources, including that provided in the course of official visits to member countries, and it has been prepared in close consultation with national authorities.
The project is coordinated in the Exchange Systems Surveillance Division of the Exchange and Trade Relations Department. It draws on the specialized contributions of staff of that Department (for specific countries), with assistance from staff members of the Fund’s five Area Departments, together with staff of other Departments.
