The Economic Issues series aims to make available to a broad readership of nonspecialists some of the economic research being produced on topical issues by IMF staff. The series draws mainly from IMF Working Papers, which are technical papers produced by IMF staff members and visiting scholars, as well as from policy-related research papers. This pamphlet was prepared by Jeremy Clift of the IMF’s External Relations Department.
This Economic Issue draws on material originally contained in IMF Working Paper 00/1, Improving Governance and Fighting Corruption in the Baltic and CIS Countries: The Role of the IMF, as well as the IMF Board’s Public Information Notice No. 00/28, IMF Adopts Added Safeguards on Use of Its Resources, of April 4, 2000. Readers may purchase the Working Paper ($7.00) from the IMF Publication Services, or download the original document from the IMF’s website: www.imf.org.
