International Monetary Fund

Abstract

The SDR Department was established to conduct all transactions in SDRs, following the creation of the new international reserve asset by the IMF in 1969. The Articles require that the General and SDR Departments be kept strictly separate, such that assets in one department cannot be used to meet liabilities of the other, except for the reimbursement of the General Department for the expenses incurred in conducting the business of the SDR Department.1 This separation reflects the fact that the SDR facility is an entirely separate financial mechanism within the IMF. A member of the IMF need not be a member of the SDR Department, though currently all are.

This paper reviews the Enhanced Initiative for Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) Initiative for Liberia. Performance under the Extended Credit Facility (ECF)-supported program is solid. The third ECF review was completed on a lapse of time basis on December 18, 2009. All but one of the quantitative performance criteria (PC) for the end-June 2009 test date were observed. The PC on total revenue collection was not observed but the deviation was temporary and did not jeopardize program objectives. Structural reform commitments were largely met, though some with delays.

Abstract

The IMF provides financial assistance to low-income member countries in two ways: through concessional lending under the Poverty Reduction and Growth Facility (PRGF) and through debt relief under the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) Initiative. The PRGF (which replaced the ESAF in 1999) supports economic programs, which strengthen substantially and in a sustainable manner balance of payments positions and foster durable growth, leading to higher living standards and a reduction in poverty. The HIPC Initiative helps countries achieve a sustainable external debt position. Resources for financing these initiatives, which are separate from the IMF’s general resources generated from quota subscriptions, have been provided through contributions by a broad segment of the IMF’s membership, as well as by the IMF itself. These resources are administered under the PRGF and PRGF-HIPC Trusts, for which the IMF acts as Trustee. This chapter describes the financing arrangements for the PRGF and for the HIPC Initiative.

International Monetary Fund. African Dept.

The 2012 Article IV Consultation with Liberia discusses the economic developments and policies of the country. Liberia recorded strong macroeconomic performance under the three-year Extended Credit Facility (ECF) Arrangement, but poverty continued to be pervasive. The short- to medium-term outlook has remained favorable, although subject to considerable risks. Following resumption of iron ore exports in 2011, real GDP growth is estimated at 9 percent in 2012, supported by strong growth in the mining sector and expansionary fiscal policy for infrastructure investment. IMF staff supports the authorities’ request for a successor arrangement under the ECF.
