IMF Launches Institute for Capacity Development

The International Monetary Fund launched the Institute for Capacity Development today to spearhead its enhanced strategy for capacity-building services for its member countries. These capacity-development efforts are aimed at helping member countries develop their skills base and build more robust economic and financial institutions. The Institute, a new department incorporating the former IMF Institute and Office of Technical Assistance Management, will enable stronger synergies and better coordination between IMF technical assistance, training, and other elements of capacity development, to better adapt to member countries’ priorities and needs, and facilitate fund raising.
