Past, present and future of the IMF
This year's International Monetary Fund-World Bank Group annual meetings will take place in Bali, Indonesia, two decades following the Asia financial crisis and in one of the countries that posed great challenges for the IMF at the time. In this three-part series, I will examine the difficulties faced by the Fund then, how it has evolved, and the trials ahead. The IMF has demonstrated its relevance to a new generation of global public policy officials, but will need to stay alert to modernise and cope with new and critical looming challenges.
