For a few months in late 2000 and early 2001, Turkey hovered on the brink of economic collapse. High inflation, a large public debt, a growing current account deficit, and delays in restructuring the economy triggered a loss of confidence among investors and caused a run on the country’s banks. To deal with the crisis, the government undertook a sharp fiscal correction, floated the exchange rate, and initiated wide-ranging structural reforms as part of an ambitious package supported by the IMF. Three years later, Turkey is on its way to becoming a new tiger economy. But it has faltered before. Will it manage to stay the course this time? Michael Deppler and Reza Moghadam—respectively Director and Assistant Director in the IMF’s European Department—spoke with Camilla Andersen of the IMF Survey about the country’s prospects.

Meeting in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, on September 20-24, the world’s top economic policymakers and financial leaders agreed to step up efforts to secure a stronger global recovery, resume stalled trade talks, accelerate efforts to achieve the UN Millennium Development Goals, and reconstruct Iraq. The IMF-World Bank Annual Meetings, held for the first time in the Middle East, attracted representatives from all 184 member countries of the two institutions, plus thousands of others—including banking executives, representatives of civil society organizations, academics, and journalists—for events on the sidelines.

Despite a series of initiatives, Japan’s financial sector remains weak and is holding back prospects for a sustained economic recovery. This appraisal, which is the product of a careful diagnostic examination under the IMF and World Bank’s joint Financial Sector Assessment Program (FSAP), urges Japan to intensify efforts to address nonperforming loans in the banking sector and tackle the structural reforms needed to produce a healthy financial system. Stefan Ingves, Director of the IMF’s Monetary and Financial Systems Department, and Paul Hilbers, Area Chief in that department, led the assessment effort. They speak with the IMF Survey about the assessment and its findings.
