The Transparency international reaction to the announcement of an long-awaited framework for “enhanced” engagement with countries on corruption and governance issues from the IMF. The NGO asks –
- will the IMF publish its basic findings on corruption risks in country reports?
- how many “spillover” countries will the IMF assess? As the IMF paper recognises, corruption in one country is often facilitated by weaknesses in the AML frameworks of another; what the IMF calls “spillovers”.
- will the IMF seek input from anti-corruption NGO in its country assessments?
