We, the Group of Seven finance ministers and central bank governors, have today adopted an integrated Action Plan to increase predictability and reduce uncertainty about official policy actions in the emerging markets. The Action Plan is part of an overall endeavor whereby the sovereign debt of all countries would ultimately be investment grade, a rating that every country could eventually achieve with the right policies. The Action Plan would help prevent financial crises and better resolve them when they occur, thereby creating the conditions for sustained growth of private investment in emerging markets and helping raise living standards of the people in emerging market countries. We pledge to work together to carry out this Action Plan. The plan comprises the following elements that are complementary and reinforce each other.

In a February 23 seminar at the IMF Institute, Joshua Aizenman, professor of economics at the University of California at Santa Cruz, examined the complex trade-off between liberalization’s adverse intermediate effects and its more arguable long-run benefits. He cautioned that successful reforms will need to factor in market imperfections.
