Abstract

Published since 1950, this authoritative annual reference is based upon a unique IMF database that tracks exchange and trade arrangements for the 187 IMF member countries, along with Hong Kong SAR, Aruba, and Curaçao and St Maarten. The Annual Report on Exchange Arrangements and Exchange Restrictions (AREAER) draws together information on exchange measures in place, the structure and setting of exchange rates, arrangements for payments and receipts, procedures for resident and nonresident accounts, controls on capital transactions, and provisions specific to the financial sector. The data are presented in a clear, easy-to-read tabular format. A summary table allows for simple cross-country comparisons of key features of their exchange and trade regimes. The report’s introduction summarizes recent global trends and developments.

Annual Report on Exchange Arrangements and Exchange Restrictions 1953

International Monetary Fund. External Relations Dept.

Abstract

This paper describes that with regard to import surcharges, advance import deposits, and measures to stimulate exports, there appears to have been a small net increase in restrictions. Also, in several member countries the role of state trading increased. Although it is difficult to quantify the effect of this, it is possible that on balance there was an increase in restrictions insofar as nontariff barriers are concerned. In its consultations and through the provision of financial resources, especially in support of stand-by arrangements, the IMF has continued to work for a multilateral trade and payments system based on effective par values and free from restrictions on current payments. In addition, in the past year the IMF reviewed its policy with respect to the granting of temporary approvals of multiple currency practices and of restrictions on payments and transfers for current international transactions that are subject to approval under the IMF’s Articles of Agreement.

Abstract

This report discusses developments in the international exchange rate and restrictive systems. The period covered by this report is 1986 and, for major developments, the first quarter of 1987. The report highlights that in 1986, protectionist pressures for trade restrictions in the industrial countries continued to be fueled by large and widening bilateral trade imbalances, persistently high levels of unemployment, and a widespread slowing of economic growth. In spite of continued resistance by some governments, quantitative restrictions were tightened in many industrial countries. There were nevertheless several positive developments in the trade and exchange system.
