Within the IMF, Switzerland heads a constituency including Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Poland, Serbia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. Through its seat on the Executive Board, Switzerland is a decision-maker within the IMF. It advocates that the IMF focus on its mandate and remain transparent. In addition to compliance with clear rules and principles, this includes the ability to react quickly to changing framework conditions. Only in this way can the IMF remain a credible, potent and financially solid institution that treats its members equally.
Particularly in the IMF, Switzerland is simultaneously working on ensuring the member states' monetary, budgetary, debt and financial sector policies are geared towards sustainability.
In this way, Switzerland is making a constructive contribution to the design of the international financial system.
