Concluding Remarks for Article IV Consultations

Poland, December 14 (Preliminary)


Letters of Intent and Memorandums of Economic and Financial Policies are prepared by a member country and describe the policies that the country intends to implement in the context of its request for financial support from the IMF.

Concluding Remarks for Article IV Consultations. At the conclusion of annual Article IV discussions with the authorities, and prior to the preparation of the staff’s report to the Executive Board, the IMF mission often provides the authorities with a statement of its preliminary findings.

Preliminary Documents on the HIPC Initiative present a preliminary assessment of a country’s eligibility for assistance under the HIPC Initiative. Documents summarize the debt sustainability analysis agreed by the staffs of the IMF and the World Bank with country authorities and are available after they have been discussed by the Boards of the institutions—with the approval of the respective country.
