Welcome to the New IMF Public Financial Management Blog
Welcome to the Public Financial Management Blog of the IMF Fiscal Affairs Department (FAD).
As the first IMF external blog and, to the best of our knowledge, the first PFM blog ever, my FAD colleagues and myself are thrilled to be breaking new ground.
Our specific objectives in launching this blog are threefold:
- Share more broadly our extensive expertise in PFM
- Contribute to improved understanding of PFM and the impact of PFM reforms
- Provide a window into IMF work in PFM, and improve communication on our work and on PFM generally
The PFM blog should be of interest to PFM professionals, academia, students, as well as to the general public. It will, of course publish articles about the IMF work in PFM, including its analytical work. But it will also feature a broad range of postings; for instance, the blog will publish postings about journal articles we like or conferences we have attended.
It should serve as a reference site to all those interested in PFM.
We are committed to helping member countries improve their PFM systems, and we hope you will find this site informative and useful. We encourage your feedback and comments, and look forward to working with you.
Do visit this blog often!
