Notes: PINS are IMF Executive Board assessments of members’ economic prospects and policies. They are issued following Article IV consultations—with the consent of the member—with background on the members’ economies, and following policy discussions in the Executive Board at the decision of the Board.

Letters of Intent and Memorandums of Economic and Financial Policies are prepared by a member country and describe the policies that the country intends to implement in the context of its request for financial support from the IMF.

Policy Framework Papers are prepared by the member country in collaboration with the staffs of the IMF and the World Bank. These documents, which are updated annually, describe the authorities’ economic objectives and macroeconomic and structural policies for three-year adjustment programs supported by Enhanced Structural Adjustment Facility resources.
