Select Committee on Treasury Ninth Report

8  Conclusions

83. The forthcoming Autumn meeting of the IMF in Singapore, in September 2006, provides an ideal opportunity for the UK Government to play a leading role in promoting and securing the most significant reforms of the role and governance of the IMF in over a generation. This Report sets out many key areas in which the success or failure of the Singapore "reform summit" will be judged. We expect the Government's response to report to this Committee and to Parliament on the progress made in Singapore. After the Singapore meeting, it should be clearer whether the IMF is being successfully reformed to become an even more effective and focussed organisation.
