IMF

International Monterary Fund

The International Monetary Fund is an international organization of 187 member countries. IMF was established to promote international monetary cooperation, exchange stability, and orderly exchange arrangements; to foster economic growth and high levels of employment; and to provide temporary financial assistance to countries to help ease balance of payments adjustment.

The IMF has been engaged in Kosovo for the last decade by providing policy advice and technical assistance. The office in Kosovo was opened in September 2002, prior to Kosovo’s membership to the IMF. Kosovo became member of IMF in 2009 (its 186 member). Since 2010, the Kosovo authorities have been engaged with IMF-supported instruments such as the Stand-by Arrangement and a Staff-Monitored Program.
