    The work of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) can be divided into three broad areas: surveillance, lending (use of IMF resources), and technical assistance (TA), also referred to as capacity building. This book surveys the range of capacity-building activities in the monetary and financial areas by the IMF in recent years, focusing both on the substance of the issues covered and on the modalities of technical support. This is done through brief descriptions and analyses of several examples of the TA provided by IMF staff in the monetary and financial areas.1 This technical support was delivered to member countries of the IMF by Fund staff together with outside experts from central banks, regulatory and other agencies, and independent consultants.

    The book would not have been possible without the contributions from the various authors, as well as from many other colleagues who reviewed the papers. We are especially grateful to Lilly Siblesz for high-quality assistance throughout various stages of the book, as well as Claudia Cohen, Harald Anderson, and Sandra Otero de Solares for excellent assistance; to Paul Gleason for invaluable advice; and to Erik Churchill for helpful editorial work.
