The work program of the IMF’s Executive Board over the coming year has among its key priorities making the institution’s medium-term strategy operational, strengthening the effectiveness of its surveillance and crisis prevention efforts, refining its role in low-income countries, and reviewing its instruments, IMF Managing Director Rodrigo de Rato said in a statement released on June 22. These priorities, which reflect the guidance of the International Monetary and Financial Committee (IMFC) at its April 16 meeting, were confirmed by the Executive Board when it discussed the Managing Director’s statement. On June 22, the Board agreed that the work program will be modified to allow consideration of the Group of Eight debt relief proposal (see page 188).

This paper examines the effects of Fund-supported programs initiated during 2002-11, with special emphasis on programs started after the onset of the recent global economic crisis. The paper investigates the effects of Fund-supported programs on key macroeconomic variables and, data restrictions permitting, on social variables (social government spending, unemployment and social outcome indicators). Further, it analyzes the contribution of fiscal and external accommodation in helping program countries get through the recent global crisis. The assessment of the impact of Fund-supported programs is necessarily incomplete to the extent that the global financial crisis is ongoing and the most recent crisis programs such as the March 2012 program for Greece are not included. The Crisis Program Review provides detailed analysis of recent GRA-supported programs.
