The Swedish delegation will include Governor Stefan Ingves, First Deputy Governor Kerstin af Jochnick and Deputy Governor Per Jansson, as well as Finance Minister Magdalena Andersson.
The International Monetary and Financial Committee (IMFC) will meet on 8 October in connection with the annual meetings. As usual, the discussions at the IMFC meeting will cover the global economy and how the countries are jointly addressing the current global financial situation.
What is the IMFC?
The International Monetary and Financial Committee (IMFC) is the IMF's policymaking forum. The Committee meets twice a year, once in the spring and once in the autumn in connection with the IMF's annual meeting, to discuss the global economy and other issues relating to the IMF's activities. The IMFC consists of 24 members that are represented by a central bank governor or a finance minister from each country or constituency in the IMF. Sweden is part of a constituency together with Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania and Norway. This year our constituency is represented on the IMFC by the Danish Finance Minister, Claus Hjort Frederiksen.
