IFI governance


Financial review body formed

26 October 2000

A Financial Sector Review Group has been set up to provide the IMF with an independent perspective on its financial sector and capital markets work. The Group consists of central and private bankers with no civil society or academic input. NGOs are concerned that the new advisory group will not tackle the IMF‘s failure to analyse the impacts of financial and capital account liberalization on poverty reduction. The Group’s report is due by the end of the year.
