The Executive Board’s semiannual discussion of the IMF’s work program focused on translating the directions laid out in the Global Policy Agenda into a specific plan for the 188-member institution over the next twelve months. In addition to supporting recovery from the global economic crisis, the work program emphasizes the need to both tackle legacy issues of the crisis—high debt, slow growth and high unemployment, and financial sector repair—and to strengthen the international monetary system through regulatory reform for financial systems, and by addressing global imbalances and spillovers. IMF Survey, the IMF’s online news magazine, spoke with Siddharth Tiwari, Director of the Strategy, Policy, and Review Department, about the key components of the work program.   #IMF   #crisis   #jobs   #future
