Abstract

The Fund’s Medium-Term Strategy (MTS) calls for a number of reforms in the governance and management of the IMF, including adjusting members’ quotas to reflect their role in the world economy more accurately; strengthening communication and transparency; embedding MTS priorities in an output-oriented medium-term budget framework; taking other steps to make the IMF a more cost-effective and efficient institution; and adopting a new income model to place the IMF on a sound financial footing for the long term. Substantial progress was made on all of these fronts during FY2007.
