Economy Tuesday 3 August 2021 | 10:13 am| Number of readings: 107 The Board of Governors of the International Monetary Fund on Tuesday approved the largest support in its history, worth $650 billion, to help countries deal with the growing fallout from the “Covid-19 ” pandemic .
In a statement, the fund said that the board approved a general distribution of the equivalent of $650 billion in special drawing rights units (456 billion units) to support global liquidity .
For her part, Kristalina Georgieva, Managing Director of the Fund, said, “It is a historic decision, this is the largest allocation of SDR allocations in the history of the Fund and is a vaccine injection into the arm of the global economy during an unprecedented crisis .”
“The distribution of these allocations will include all member countries, address the long-term global need for reserves, build confidence, and enhance the resilience and stability of the global economy, and this distribution will help, in particular, the most vulnerable countries suffering in their quest to overcome the impact of the Covid-19 crisis .”
Georgieva added, “It is like a vaccine injection into the arm of the global economy during an unprecedented crisis. The distribution of these allocations will include all member countries, address the long-term global need for reserves, build confidence, and enhance the resilience and stability of the global economy. In particular, this distribution will help the countries most vulnerable to suffering in their quest to overcome the impact of the COVID-19 crisis .”
This general distribution of SDR allocations will become effective on August 23, 2021. Member countries will receive newly issued SDR units in proportion to their existing quotas in the Fund .
About $275 billion (about 193 billion SDR) of the new issuance will be distributed to emerging markets and developing countries, including low-income countries .
In this regard, Ms. Georgieva said: “We will also continue to actively engage with our member countries to identify possible options for voluntary transfer of SDRs from the richest to the poorest and most vulnerable member countries to support their efforts to recover from the pandemic and achieve resilient and sustainable growth .”
An essential option in this regard is for member countries with strong external positions to voluntarily transfer part of their SDR allocations to support targeted lending to low-income countries through the Poverty Reduction and Growth Trust Fund ( PRGT ). Interest-free concessional financing is currently provided through this fund.
The Fund is also looking at other options to help the poorest and most vulnerable countries in their recovery efforts. A solidity and sustainability trust fund could be considered to facilitate more solid and sustainable growth in the medium term. https://aynaliraqnews.com/index.php?aa=news&id22=150375
