    Preface

    The Legal Department and the Institute of the IMF held their seventh biennial seminar for legal advisers of central banks of member countries on May 9–19, 2000. As in earlier seminars, presentations were made by officials of the IMF and other international organizations, officials of central banks and regulatory agencies, representatives of the private sector, lawyers, and scholars. The papers published in this volume are based on these presentations. The views they express are those of their authors and should not be attributed either to the IMF or to any institution with which the authors are affiliated.

    The seminar covered a broad range of topics, which are reflected in this volume, including activities of the IMF, developments in the European Monetary Union, the architecture of the international financial system, the supervision and regulation of financial institutions, the role of central banks, payments systems, international financial and monetary relations, and governance.

    The preparation of an international seminar, with participants from about forty central banks and speakers coming from different parts of the world, is a complex affair. Many individuals were involved in the preparation of this seminar and the publication of this volume. I wish to express our particular gratitude to Hermann Krull, who helped organize the seminar; Robert Effros, who participated in the preparation and was the moderator of the seminar; Alice Peñalosa, Stella Ymar, Esther Parsons and Linda Byron, who made the necessary arrangements and ensured the smooth functioning of the seminar; Deidre Gantt, Julia Baca, and Christopher Matson, who prepared the manuscript; and Roy Baban and Glenn Gottselig, of the Legal Department, as well as Archana Kumar, their counterpart in the External Relations Department, who oversaw the preparation and publication of this volume.
