To the Board of Governors of the International Monetary Fund

Washington, DC

We have audited the accompanying combined balance sheets of the Poverty Reduction and Growth Facility-Heavily Indebted Poor Countries Trust and Related Account (the “Trust”) as of April 30, 2008 and 2007, and the related combined statements of income and changes in resources and of cash flows for the years then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Trust’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.

We conducted our audits in accordance with International Standards on Auditing and auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Trust’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, such financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the combined financial position of the Poverty Reduction and Growth Facility-Heavily Indebted Poor Countries Trust and Related Account at April 30, 2008 and 2007, and the combined results of its operations and its cash flows for the years then ended in conformity with International Financial Reporting Standards.

Our audits were conducted for the purpose of forming an opinion on the basic combined financial statements taken as a whole. The supplemental schedules listed on pages 59 to 62 are presented for the purpose of additional analysis and are not a required part of the basic combined financial statements. These schedules are the responsibility of the Trust’s management. Such schedules have been subjected to the auditing procedures applied in our audits of the basic combined financial statements and, in our opinion, are fairly stated in all material respects when considered in relation to the basic combined financial statements taken as a whole.
