In its report, the Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) examined the effectiveness of IMF-supported programs in Jordan over an extended period of engagement. The analysis is useful and most of the report’s main findings appear robust and to support the ex post assessment—itself an IEO recommendation—prepared by staff.
The lessons are straightforward and the recommendations are similar to those made in previous IEO reports, and that were subsequently implemented. The staff statement provides a more detailed response to the findings and recommendations. I look forward to the Board discussion, which will provide the opportunity for Executive Directors to consider the implications of these recommendations for the institution.
