United States under article III, section 2(a), of the Articles of

Agreement of the Fund; (b) propose a par value for the United

funds denominated in United States dollars, unless the Secretary of

the Treasury transmits a notice of such proposed borrowing to both

Houses of the Congress at least 60 days prior to the date on which

such borrowing is scheduled to occur.

The Secretary of the Treasury is authorized to pay the balance of

the subscription of the United States to the Fund not provided for

in subsection (a) and to pay the subscription of the United States

to the Bank from time to time when payments are required to be made

to the Bank. For the purpose of making these payments, the

transaction $8,675,000,000 of the proceeds of any securities

hereafter issued under chapter 31 of title 31, and the purposes for

which securities may be issued under that chapter are extended to

include such purpose. Payment under this paragraph of the

subscription of the United States to the Fund or the Bank and

repayments thereof shall be treated as public-debt transactions of

the United States.

For the purpose of keeping to a minimum the cost to the United

States of participation in the Fund and the Bank, the Secretary of

the Treasury, after paying the subscription of the United States to

the Fund, and any part of the subscription of the United States to

the Bank required to be made under article II, section 7(i), of the

Articles of Agreement of the Bank, is authorized and directed to

issue special notes of the United States from time to time at par

and to deliver such notes to the Fund and the Bank in exchange for

dollars to the extent permitted by the respective Articles of

Agreement. The special notes provided for in this paragraph shall

be issued under the authority and subject to the provisions of

chapter 31 of title 31, and the purposes for which securities may

be issued under that chapter are extended to include the purposes

for which special notes are authorized and directed to be issued

under this paragraph, but such notes shall bear no interest, shall

be nonnegotiable, and shall be payable on demand of the Fund or the

Bank, as the case may be. The face amount of special notes issued

to the Fund under the authority of this paragraph and outstanding

at any one time shall not exceed in the aggregate the amount of the

subscription of the United States actually paid to the Fund and the

dollar equivalent of currencies and gold which the United States

shall have purchased from the Fund in accordance with the Articles

of Agreement, and the face amount of such notes issued to the Bank

and outstanding at any one time shall not exceed in the aggregate

the amount of the subscription of the United States actually paid

Monetary Fund, the dollar equivalent of 4,202.5 million Special

Drawing Rights (approximately $5,537,839,000), to remain available

until expended, and balances equivalent to the current SDR value of

the United States quota in the Fund shall be merged with this

appropriation. Amounts equivalent to the United States reserve

position in the Fund shall be credited to this appropriation.

Amounts available in this account may be transferred to the Fund by

the Secretary of the Treasury to meet United States obligations in

the Fund in an amount not to exceed at any time the United States

quota in the Fund. The amounts provided for valuation adjustments

of Fund holdings of United States dollars shall continue to be

available for this purpose and shall be available for transfers to

this appropriation account for the purpose of such adjustments. In

the administration of these funds it shall be the policy of the

United States:

"(1) that the Palestine Liberation Organization should not be

given membership in the Fund or be given observer status or any

other official status at any meeting sponsored by or associated

with the Fund;

"(2) that the United States Executive Director of the Fund

shall promptly notify the Fund of such policy;

"(3) that in the event that the Fund provides either

membership, observer status, or any other official status to the

Palestine Liberation Organization, such action would result in a

serious diminution of United States support; and

"(4) that upon review of such action, the President would be

required to report his recommendations to the Congress with

regard to any further United States participation in the Fund."

(a) Official interpretation of authority of Fund

The governor and executive director of the Fund appointed by the

authority to use its resources to provide facilities for relief,

reconstruction, or armaments, or to meet a large or sustained

In the realization that additional measures of international

PURPOSES

In defining the purposes of act July 15, 1946, sections 286l and

286m of this title, Congress stated that:

"Whereas in the Bretton Woods Agreements Act [this subchapter]

the Congress has declared it to be the policy of the United States

'to seek to bring about further agreement and cooperation among

nations and international bodies, as soon as possible, on ways and

means which will best reduce obstacles to and restrictions upon

international trade, eliminate unfair trade practices, promote

mutually advantageous commercial relations, and otherwise

facilitate the expansion and balanced growth of international trade

and promote the stability of international economic relations'; and

"Whereas in further implementation of the purposes of the Bretton

Woods Agreements, the Governments of the United States and the

United Kingdom have negotiated an agreement dated December 6, 1945,

designed to expedite the achievement of stable and orderly exchange

arrangements, the prompt elimination of exchange restrictions and

discriminations, and other objectives of the above-mentioned policy

declared by the Congress."

FINANCIAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE GOVERNMENTS OF THE UNITED STATES

AND THE UNITED KINGDOM

It is hereby agreed between the Government of the United States

of America and the Government of the United Kingdom of Great

Britain and Northern Ireland as follows:

1. Effective date of the agreement: The effective date of this

Agreement shall be the date on which the Government of the United

States notifies the Government of the United Kingdom that the

Congress of the United States has made available the funds

necessary to extend to the Government of the United Kingdom the

line of credit in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement.

2. Line of credit: The Government of the United States will

extend to the Government of the United Kingdom a line of credit of

$3,750,000,000 which may be drawn upon at any time between the

effective date of this Agreement and December 31, 1951, inclusive.

3. Purpose of the line of credit: The purpose of the line of

credit is to facilitate purchases by the United Kingdom of goods

and services in the United States, to assist the United Kingdom to

meet transitional post-war deficits in its current balance of

payments, to help the United Kingdom to maintain adequate reserves

of gold and dollars, and to assist the Government of the United

Kingdom to assume the obligations of multilateral trade, as defined

in this and other agreements.

4. Amortization and interest:

(i) The amount of the line of credit drawn by December 31, 1951,

shall be repaid in 50 annual installments beginning on December 31,

1951, with interest at the rate of 2 percent per annum. Interest

for the year 1951 shall be computed on the amount outstanding on

December 31, 1951, and for each year thereafter, interest shall be

computed on the amount outstanding on January 1 of each such year.

Forty-nine annual installments of principal repayments and

interest shall be equal, calculated at the rate of $31,823,000 for

each $1,000,000,000 of the line of credit drawn by December 31,

1951, and the fiftieth installment shall be at the rate of

$31,840,736.65 for each such $1,000,000,000. Each installment shall

consist of the full amount of the interest due and the remainder of

the installment shall be the principal to be repaid in that year.

Payments required by this section are subject to the provisions of

section 5.

(ii) The Government of the United Kingdom may accelerate

repayment of the amount drawn under this line of credit.

5. Deferment of annual installments.

(i) In any calendar year after December 31, 1956, in which the

Government of the United Kingdom advises the Government of the

United States that it finds that a deferment is necessary in view

of the present and prospective conditions of international exchange

and the level of its gold and foreign exchange reserves, the

Government of the United Kingdom may defer the payment of the

annual installment for that year of principal repayment and

interest specified under Section 4. Not more than seven (7) annual

installments may be so deferred. The first of any such deferred

installments shall be paid on December 31, 2001, and the others

shall be paid annually thereafter, in order.

(ii) In addition, the installment of interest in respect of the

year 1956 is hereby deferred, in lieu of any right of waiver

hitherto existing. This installment shall be paid on December 31 of

the year following that in which the last of all other

installments, including installments deferred under the preceding

paragraph, is due.

(iii) Deferred installments shall bear interest at the rate of 2

percent per annum, payable annually on December 31 of each year

following that in which deferment occurs.

(iv) Payment of deferred installments may be accelerated, in

whole or in part, at the option of the Government of the United

Kingdom. [Amended Mar. 6, 1957, eff. Apr. 25, 1957.]

6. Relation of this line of credit to other obligations. The

Government of the United Kingdom undertakes not to defer an

installment under Section 5 of this Agreement in any year, unless

it also defers the installment due in that year under the Financial

Agreement between the Government of Canada and the Government of

the United Kingdom, dated March 6, 1946. [Amended Mar. 6, 1957,

eff. Apr. 25, 1957.]

7. Sterling area exchange arrangements: The Government of the

United Kingdom will complete arrangements as early as practicable

and in any case not later than one year after the effective date of

this Agreement, unless in exceptional cases a later date is agreed

upon after consultation, under which immediately after the

completion of such arrangements the sterling receipts from current

transactions of all sterling area countries (apart from any

receipts arising out of military expenditure by the Government of

the United Kingdom prior to December 31, 1948, to the extent to

which they are treated by agreement with the countries concerned on

the same basis as the balances accumulated during the war) will be

freely available for current transactions in any currency area

without discrimination; with the result that any discrimination

arising from the so-called sterling area dollar pool will be

entirely removed and that each member of the sterling area will

have its current sterling and dollar receipts at its free

disposition for current transactions anywhere.

8. Other exchange arrangements:

(i) Government of the United Kingdom agrees that after the

effective date of this Agreement it will not apply exchange

controls in such a manner as to restrict (a) payments or transfers

in respect of products of the United States permitted to be

imported into the United Kingdom or other current transactions

between the two countries or (b) the use of sterling balances to

the credit of residents of the United States arising out of current

transactions. Nothing in this paragraph (i) shall affect the

provisions of Article VII of the Articles of Agreement of the

International Monetary Fund when those Articles have come into

force.

(ii) The Governments of the United States and the United Kingdom

agree that not later than one year after the effective date of this

Agreement, unless in exceptional cases a later date is agreed upon

after consultation, they will impose no restrictions on payments

and transfers for current transactions. The obligations of this

paragraph (ii) shall not apply:

(a) to balances of third countries and their nationals

accumulated before this paragraph (ii) becomes effective; or

(b) to restrictions imposed in conformity with the Articles of

Agreement of the International Monetary Fund, provided that the

Governments of the United Kingdom and the United States will not

continue to invoke the provisions of Article XIV, Section 2 of

those Articles after this paragraph (ii) becomes effective, unless

in exceptional cases after consultation they agree otherwise; or

(c) to restrictions imposed in connection with measures designed

to uncover and dispose of assets of Germany and Japan.

(iii) This section and section 9, which are in anticipation of

more comprehensive arrangements by multilateral agreement, shall

operate until December 31, 1951.

9. Import arrangements: If either the Government of the United

States or the Government of the United Kingdom imposes or maintains

quantitative import restrictions, such restrictions shall be

administered on a basis which does not discriminate against imports

from the other country in respect of any product; provided that

this undertaking shall not apply in cases in which (a) its

application would have the effect of preventing the country

imposing such restrictions from utilizing, for the purchase of

needed imports, inconvertible currencies accumulated up to December

31, 1946, or (b) there may be special necessity for the country

imposing such restrictions to assist, by measures not involving a

substantial departure from the general rule of non-discrimination,

a country whose economy has been disrupted by war, or (c) either

government imposes quantitative restrictions having equivalent

effect to any exchange restrictions which that government is

authorized to impose in conformity with Article VII of the Articles

of Agreement of the International Monetary Fund. The provisions of

this section shall become effective as soon as practicable but not

later than December 31, 1946.

10. Accumulated sterling balances:

(i) The Government of the United Kingdom intends to make

agreements with the countries concerned, varying according to the

circumstances of each case, for an early settlement covering the

sterling balances accumulated by sterling area and other countries

prior to such settlement (together with any future receipts arising

out of military expenditure by the Government of the United Kingdom

to the extent to which they are treated on the same basis by

agreement with the countries concerned). The settlements with the

sterling area countries will be on the basis of dividing these

accumulated balances into three categories (a) balances to be

released at once and convertible into any currency for current

transactions, (b) balances to be similarly released by installments

over a period of years beginning in 1951, and (c) balances to be

adjusted as a contribution to the settlement of war and postwar

indebtedness and in recognition of the benefits which the countries

concerned might be expected to gain from such a settlement. The

Government of the United Kingdom will make every endeavor to secure

the early completion of these arrangements.

(ii) In consideration of the fact that an important purpose of

the present line of credit is to promote the development of

multilateral trade and facilitate its early resumption on a

non-discriminatory basis, the Government of the United Kingdom

agrees that any sterling balances released or otherwise available

for current payments will, not later than one year after the

effective date of this Agreement unless in special cases a later

date is agreed upon after consultation, be freely available for

current transactions in any currency area without discrimination.

11. Definitions:

For the purposes of this Agreement:

(i) The term "current transactions" shall have the meaning

prescribed in Article XIX (i) of the Articles of Agreement of the

International Monetary Fund.

(ii) The term "sterling area" means the United Kingdom and the

other territories declared by the Defence (Finance) Definition of

the Sterling Area) (No. 2) Order, 1944, to be included in the

sterling area, namely "the following territories excluding Canada

and Newfoundland, that is to say -

(a) any Dominion,

(b) any other part of His Majesty's dominions,

(c) any territory in respect of which a mandate on behalf of the

League of Nations has been accepted by His Majesty and is being

exercised by His Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom or in

any Dominion,

(d) any British protectorate or protected State,

(e) Egypt, the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan and Iraq.

(f) Iceland and the Faroe Islands."

12. Consultation on Agreement: Either government shall be

entitled to approach the other for a reconsideration of any of the

provisions of this Agreement, if in its opinion the prevailing

conditions of international exchange justify such reconsideration,

with a view to agreeing upon modifications for presentation to

their respective legislatures.

day of December, 1945.

Sec. 286q. Limitation on allocations to the United States

-STATUTE-

(a) Unless Congress by law authorizes such action, neither the

President nor any person or agency shall on behalf of the United

States vote to allocate in each basic period Special Drawing Rights

under article XVIII, sections 2 and 3, of the Articles of Agreement

of the Fund so that allocations to the United States in that period

exceed an amount equal to the United States quota in the Fund as

authorized under the Bretton Woods Agreements Act [22 U.S.C. 286 et

seq.].

(b)(1) Neither the President nor any person or agency shall on

behalf of the United States vote to allocate Special Drawing Rights

under article XVIII, sections 2 and 3, of the Articles of Agreement

of the Fund without consultations by the Secretary of the Treasury

at least 90 days prior to any such vote, with the Chairman and

ranking minority members of the Committee on Foreign Relations and

the Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs of the Senate

and the Committee on Banking, Finance and Urban Affairs of the

House of Representatives, and the appropriate subcommittees

thereof.

(2) Such consultations shall include an explanation of the

consistency of such proposal to allocate with the requirements of

the Articles of Agreement of the Fund, in particular the

requirement that in all its decisions with respect to allocation of

Special Drawing Rights, the Fund shall "seek to meet the long-term

global need, as and when it arises, to supplement existing reserve

assets in such manner as will promote the attainment of its

purposes and will avoid economic stagnation and deflation as well

as excess demand and inflation in the world".

Sec. 286s. Consideration of basic human needs in economic

adjustment programs supported by Fund

-STATUTE-

(a) Formulation and design of programs

The President shall instruct the Secretary of the Treasury, the

Secretary of State, and other appropriate Federal officials to use

all appropriate means to encourage countries, in formulating

economic adjustment programs to deal with their balance of payments

difficulties, to design those programs so as to safeguard, to the

maximum feasible extent, jobs, investment, real per capita income,

policies to reduce the gap in wealth between rich and poor, and

social programs such as health, housing, and education.

(b) Changes in Fund guidelines, policies, and decisions; review

prior to approval of standby arrangements; coordination among

institutions; coordination between Fund and Bank; periodic

analyses

To ensure the effectiveness of economic adjustment programs

supported by Fund resources and the reinforcement of those programs

by longer term efforts to promote sustained growth and improved

living conditions -

(1) United States representatives to the Fund shall recommend

and shall work for changes in Fund guidelines, policies, and

decisions that would -

(A) permit stand-by arrangements to be extended beyond three

years, as necessary to enable Fund members to implement their

economic adjustment programs successfully;

(B) provide that in approving any economic adjustment program

the Fund shall take into account the effect such program will

have on jobs, investment, real per capita income, the gap in

wealth between the rich and poor, and social programs such as

health, housing, and education, in order to seek to minimize

the adverse impact of those adjustment programs on basic human

needs; and

(C) provide that letters of intent submitted to the Fund in

support of an economic adjustment program reflect that the

member country has taken into account the effect such program

will have on the factors listed in subparagraph (B);

(2)(A) before voting on the approval of any standby arrangement

with respect to any economic adjustment program, the United

States Executive Director shall review -

(i) any analysis of factors prepared by the Fund or the

member country in accordance with subparagraphs (B) and (C) of

paragraph (1), or

(ii) if no such analysis is prepared and available for such

review, an analysis which shall be prepared by the United

States Governor of the Fund which examines the effect of the

program on the factors listed in subparagraph (B) of paragraph

(1); and

(B) the United States Executive Director of the Fund shall take

into account the analysis reviewed pursuant to subparagraph (A)

of this paragraph in voting on approval of that standby

arrangement;

(3) United States representatives to the Fund, to the Bank, and

to other appropriate institutions shall work toward improving

coordination among these institutions and, in particular, shall

work toward formulation of programs in association with economic

adjustment programs supported by Fund resources which (A) will,

among other things, promote employment, investment, real income

per capita, improvements in income distribution, and the

objectives of social programs such as health, housing, and

education, and (B) will, to the maximum extent feasible and

consistent with the borrowing country's need to improve its

balance of payments position within a reasonable period,

ameliorate any adverse effects of economic adjustment programs on

the poor;

(4) United States representatives to the Fund and the Bank

shall seek amendments to decisions on policies on the use of Fund

and Bank resources to provide that, where countries are seeking

Extended Fund Facility or upper credit tranche drawings from the

Fund and are eligible to receive financing from the Bank, the

Fund and Bank will coordinate their financing activities in order

-

(A) to take into account the effects of economic adjustment

programs on the areas listed in clause (A) of paragraph (3),

(B) to provide, to the extent feasible, Bank project loans

designed to safeguard and further basic human needs in

countries adopting economic adjustment programs supported by

Fund resources, and

(C) to provide, as appropriate, Bank financing for programs

of structural adjustment that will facilitate development of a

productive economic base and greater attainment of basic human

needs objectives over the longer term; and

(5) United States representatives to the Fund and the Bank

shall request the Fund and the Bank to provide periodic analyses

of the effects of economic adjustment programs supported by Fund

or Bank financing on jobs, investment, real income per capita,

income distribution, and social programs such as health, housing,

and education.

these strains can only be relieved if the oil exporting countries

assume a greater burden for financing balance-of-payments deficits

innovative proposals to encourage more direct recycling of oil

surpluses and to increase its own liquidity."

policies which will help establish the economic conditions

necessary for more appropriate financial and exchange rate

alignment and stability, it is the sense of Congress that the

States Trade Representative, initiate discussions with other

countries regarding the economic dislocations which result from

to work for adoption of policies in the Fund, both within the

framework of article IV (of the Articles of Agreement of the

Fund) consultations and with respect to the conditions associated

with Fund-supported balance of payments adjustments programs,

which promote conditions contributing to the stability of

exchange rates and avoid the manipulation of exchange rates

between major currencies. Among other initiatives, the Secretary

of the Treasury shall propose strengthening the article IV

consultation procedures of the Fund to attempt to ensure that

countries which are artificially maintaining undervalued or

overvalued rates of exchange agree to adopt market determined

exchange rates.

(b) In determining his vote on extensions of assistance to any

-STATUTE-

(a) Sense of Congress

It is the sense of the Congress that -

(1) the lack of sufficient information currently available to

allow members of the Fund to make sound and prudent decisions

concerning their public and private sector international

borrowing, and to allow lenders to make sound and prudent

decisions concerning their international lending, threatens the

stability of the international monetary system; and

(2) in recognition of the Fund's duties, as provided

particularly by article VIII of the Articles of Agreement of the

Fund, to act as a center for the collection and exchange of

information on monetary and financial problems, the Fund should

adopt necessary and appropriate measures to ensure that more

complete and timely financial information will be available.

(b) Initiation by United States Executive Director of discussions

with other Directors; adoption of procedures

To this end, the Secretary of the Treasury shall instruct the

United States Executive Director of the Fund to initiate

discussions with other directors of the Fund and with Fund

management, and to propose and vote for, the adoption of

procedures, within the Fund -

(1) to collect and disseminate information, on a quarterly

basis, from and to Fund members, and to such other persons as the

Fund deems appropriate, concerning -

(A) the extension of credit by banks or nonbanks to private

and public entities, including all government entities,

instrumentalities, and central banks of member countries; and

(B) the receipt of such credit by those private and public

entities of member countries, where such banks or nonbanks are

not principally established within the borders of the member

country to which the credits are extended; and

(2) to disseminate publicly information which is developed in

the course of the Fund's collection, and to review and comment on

efforts which the Fund determines would serve to enhance the

informational base upon which international borrowing and lending

decisions are taken.

(c) "Credit" defined

For purposes of this section, the term "credit" includes -

(1) outstanding loans to private and public entities, including

government entities, instrumentalities, and central banks of any

member, and

(2) unused lines of credit which have been made available to

those private and public entities of any member,

where such loans or lines of credit are repayable in freely

convertible currency.

(d) Providing necessary information

The President is authorized to use the authority provided under

section 286f of this title to require any person (as defined in

such section) subject to the jurisdiction of the United States to

provide such information as the Fund determines to be necessary in

order to carry out the provisions of this section.

Communist dictatorships

-STATUTE-

The Congress hereby finds that Communist dictatorships result in

severe constraints on labor and capital mobility and other highly

inefficient labor and capital supply rigidities which contribute to

balance of payments deficits in direct contradiction of the goals

of the International Monetary Fund. Therefore, the Secretary of the

Treasury shall instruct the United States Executive Director of the

Fund to actively oppose any facility involving use of Fund credit

by any Communist dictatorship, unless the Secretary of the Treasury

certifies and documents in writing upon request and so notifies and

appears, if requested, before the Foreign Relations and Banking,

Housing, and Urban Affairs Committees of the Senate and the

Banking, Finance and Urban Affairs Committee of the House of

Representatives, at least twenty-one days in advance of any vote on

such drawing that such drawing -

(1) provides the basis for correcting the balance of payments

difficulties and restoring a sustainable balance of payments

position;

(2) would reduce the severe constraints on labor and capital

mobility or other highly inefficient labor and capital supply

rigidities and advances market-oriented forces in that country;

and

(3) is in the best economic interest of the majority of the

people in that country.

Should the Secretary not meet a request to appear before the

aforementioned committees at least twenty-one days in advance of

any vote on any facility involving use of Fund credit by any

communist dictatorship and certify and document in writing that

these three conditions have been met, the United States Executive

Director shall vote against such program.

Federal Reserve System, to use all appropriate means to encourage

countries to formulate economic adjustment programs to deal with

percentage of the projected annual export earnings of such

country; and

(C) provide that in approving any economic adjustment program

the Fund shall take into account the number of countries

applying to the Fund for economic adjustment programs and the

aggregate effects that such programs will have on international

economic growth, world trade, exports and employment of other

member countries, and the long-term solvency of banks; and

(2) except as provided in subsection (c) of this section, the

United States Executive Director of the Fund shall oppose and

vote against providing assistance from the Fund for any economic

adjustment program for a country in which the annual external

debt service exceeds 85 per centum of the annual export earnings

of such country, unless the Secretary of the Treasury first

determines and provides written documentation to the Committee on

Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs and the Committee on Foreign

Relations of the Senate and the Committee on Banking, Finance and

Urban Affairs of the House of Representatives that -

(A) the economic adjustment program converts high interest

rate, short-term bank debt into long-term debt at significantly

narrower interest rate spreads than the average interest rate

spreads prevailing on bank debt reschedulings negotiated

between August 1982 and August 1983 for countries receiving

assistance from the Fund for economic adjustment programs in

order to minimize the burdens of adjustment on the debtor

nation, provided that such interest rate spreads are consistent

with that nation's need to obtain adequate external private

financing;

(B) the annual external debt service required of the country

involved is a manageable and prudent percentage of the

projected annual export earnings of such country; and

(C) the economic adjustment program will not have an adverse

impact on international economic growth, world trade, exports,

and employment of other member countries, and the long-term

solvency of banks.

(c) Emergencies and extraordinary circumstances

The provisions of subsection (b)(2) of this section shall not

apply in any case in which the Secretary of the Treasury first

determines and provides written documentation to the Committee on

Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs and the Committee on Foreign

Relations of the Senate and the Committee on Banking, Finance and

Urban Affairs of the House of Representatives that -

(1) an emergency exists in a nation that has applied to the

Fund for assistance that requires an immediate short-term loan to

avoid disrupting orderly financial markets;

(2) a sudden decrease in export earnings in the country

applying to the Fund for assistance has increased the ratio of

annual external debt service to annual export earnings, to

greater than 85 per centum for a period projected to be no more

than one year; or

(3) other extraordinary circumstances exist which warrant

waiving the provisions of subsection (b)(2) of this section.

Sec. 286hh. Policy based lending for debt reduction

-STATUTE-

(a) Criteria

The Secretary of the Treasury shall instruct the United States

Executive Director of the International Bank for Reconstruction and

Development to initiate discussions with other directors of such

bank and to advocate and support the facilitation of voluntary

market-based programs for the reduction of sovereign debt and the

promotion of sustainable economic development, which, if

implemented, would -

(1) not require any organization or government to participate

in such a program;

(2) result in debt reduction for each participating country

tailored to the particular situation of each country;

(3) provide assistance to participating countries conditioned

on the implementation of economic reforms, and the preservation

of economic reforms previously implemented, by the country that

are consistent with the principles of sustainable development;

(4) encourage participating countries to make economic

adjustments steadily and over a period of time in order to

achieve policy reform;

(5) use debt reduction techniques that would not compensate

commercial banks for the reduction in the value of such debt, but

would serve as a catalyst for new lending;

(6) involve such bank in lending for purposes of debt reduction

and conversion only where such involvement would not lower the

credit rating of such bank;

(7) not require public sector funding beyond that provided

through any capital increase for such bank, and any replenishment

for the International Development Association, which is agreed to

by the member countries of such institutions; and

(8) accomplish debt reduction, not as an end, but as a means to

greater growth and investment in, and the restoration of

voluntary private lending to, participating countries for

environmentally and economically sustainable development.

(b) Policy based lending for debt reduction and sustainable growth

The Secretary of the Treasury shall instruct the United States

Executive Director of the International Bank for Reconstruction and

Development to initiate discussions with other directors of such

bank and to propose that policy based loans be made by such bank

for, among other reasons, facilitating a reduction in the debt

service burden of any country which is participating in a voluntary

market-based program for debt reduction described in subsection (c)

of this section.

(c) Voluntary market-based program for debt reduction and

sustainable growth

In connection with the discussions initiated pursuant to

subsection (b) of this section, the Secretary shall instruct the

United States Executive Director of the International Bank for

Reconstruction and Development to propose that a country be

considered to be participating in a voluntary market-based program

of debt reduction for purposes of subsection (b) of this section if

the creditors of such country agree to significantly reduce the

debt service of such country through forgiveness of a percentage of

the interest owed by such country on any sovereign debt or through

any other means.

(d) Reports

Not later than March 1, 1989, March 1, 1991, and March 1, 1993,

respectively, the Secretary of the Treasury shall submit to the

Committee on Banking, Finance and Urban Affairs of the House of

Representatives and the Committee on Foreign Relations of the

Senate 3 reports each of which -

(1) describes the long term strategy and lending programs of

the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development for

reducing and managing the debt burden of the countries designated

as "Highly Indebted Countries" in the 1987-1988 World Debt Tables

published by such bank, and summarize the long term strategy and

lending programs of such bank for other seriously indebted

countries;

(2) contains an explanation of the measures taken by such bank

to facilitate the reduction of the debt burden of the countries

designated as "Highly Indebted Countries" in the 1987-1988 World

Debt tables (!1) published by such bank;

(3) describes the extent (if any) to which such bank has

implemented the measures described in subsections (b) and (c) of

this section; and

(4) describes the success each of such countries has had in

managing and reducing their debt burdens and achieving

sustainable and equitable economic growth as measured by criteria

including the ratio of debt service to exports, the ratio of debt

to gross national product, net resource flows, and per capita

income.

(e) Review by House Banking Committee

On receipt of each report required to be submitted pursuant to

subsection (d) of this section, and after consultation with the

Secretary of the Treasury, the Committee on Banking, Finance and

Urban Affairs of the House of Representatives shall forward such

report to the Committee on Appropriations of the House of

Representatives with an assessment by the Committee on Banking,

Finance and Urban Affairs describing the effect on the

international debt situation of funding the subscription of the

United States to the shares of capital stock of the International

Bank for Reconstruction and Development due for payment by the

United States in the then next fiscal year.

-STATUTE-

(a) Policy changes within IMF

The Secretary of the Treasury shall instruct the United States

Executive Director of the Fund to promote regularly and vigorously

in program discussions and quota increase negotiations the

following proposals:

(1) Poverty alleviation, reduction of barriers to economic and

social progress, and progress toward environmentally sound

policies and programs

(A)(i) Considerations of poverty alleviation and the reduction

of barriers to economic and social progress should be

incorporated into all Fund programs and all consultations under

article IV of the Articles of Agreement of the Fund.

(ii) Preparation of Policy Framework Papers should be extended

to all nations which have Fund programs and active Bank or

International Development Association lending programs, and

existence of a Policy Framework Paper should be a precondition

for new lending to such nations by the Fund.

(iii) All Policy Framework Papers should articulate the

principal poverty, economic, and social measures that the

borrowing nation needs to address, and this portion of the Policy

Framework Paper (or a summary thereof that includes specific

measures and timing) should be made available when the Policy

Framework Paper is submitted to the Executive Directors of the

Bank and of the Fund for consideration.

(iv) In considering whether to allocate resources of the Fund

to a borrower, the Fund should take into consideration the nature

of the program and commitment of the borrower to address the

issues referred to in clause (iii).

(v) The Fund should establish procedures to enable the Fund to

cooperate with the Bank in evaluating the effectiveness of the

measures referred to in clause (iii), at the levels of policy,

project design, monitoring, and reporting, in the international

financial institutions and in the borrowing nations.

(B)(i) The Fund should be encouraged to make further progress

toward environmentally sound policies and programs.

(ii) The Fund should incorporate environmental considerations

into all Fund programs, including consultations under article IV

of the Articles of Agreement of the Fund.

nations to implement systems of natural resource accounting in

their national income accounts.

(iv) The Fund should be encouraged to assist and cooperate

fully with the statistical research being undertaken by the

Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development and by the

United Nations in order to facilitate development and adoption of

a generally applicable system for taking account of the depletion

or degradation of natural resources in national income accounts.

(v) The Fund should be encouraged to consider and implement, as

appropriate, revisions in its national income reporting systems

consistent with such new systems as are of general applicability.

(2) Policy audits

(A) The Fund should conduct periodic audits to review

systematically the policy prescriptions recommended and required

by the Fund in the areas of poverty and the environment.

(B) The purposes of such audits would be -

(i) to determine whether the Fund's objectives were met; and

(ii) to evaluate the social and environmental impacts of the

implementation of the policy prescriptions.

(C) Such audits would have access to all ongoing programs and

activities of the Fund and the ability to review the effects of

Fund-supported programs, on a country-by-country basis, with

respect to poverty, economic development, and environment.

(D) Such audits should be made public as appropriate with due

respect to confidentiality.

(3) Ensuring policy options that increase the productive

participation of the poor

The Fund should establish procedures that ensure the focus of

future economic reform programs approved by the Fund on policy

options that increase the productive participation of the poor in

the economy.

(4) Public access to information

(A) The Fund should establish procedures for public access to

information.

(B) Such procedures shall seek to ensure access of the public

to information while paying due regard to appropriate

confidentiality.

prepared by the Fund's mission to a country are examples of

documents that should be made public at an appropriate time and

in appropriate ways.

Each annual report of the National Advisory Council on

International Monetary and Financial Policies shall describe the

following:

(1) The actions that the United States Executive Director and

other officials have taken to convince the Fund to adopt the

proposals set forth in subsection (a) of this section through

formal initiatives before the Board and management of the Fund,

through bilateral discussions with other member nations, and

through any further quota increase negotiations.

(2) The status of the progress being made by the Fund in

implementing the proposals set forth in subsection (a) of this

section.

(c) Study

The Secretary of the Treasury shall instruct the United States

Executive Director to the Fund to urge the Fund -

(1) to explore ways to increase the involvement and

participation of important ministries, national development

experts, environmental experts, free-market experts, and other

legitimate experts and representatives from the loan-recipient

country in the development of Fund programs; and

Sec. 286nn. Approval of contributions for debt reductions for the

poorest countries

-STATUTE-

For the purpose of mobilizing the resources of the Fund in order

to help reduce poverty and improve the lives of residents of poor

countries and, in particular, to allow those poor countries with

unsustainable debt burdens to receive deeper, broader, and faster

debt relief, without allowing gold to reach the open market or

otherwise adversely affecting the market price of gold, the

Secretary of the Treasury is authorized to instruct the United

States Executive Director of the Fund to vote -

(1) to approve an arrangement whereby the Fund -

(A) sells a quantity of its gold at prevailing market prices

to a member or members in nonpublic transactions sufficient to

generate 2.226 billion Special Drawing Rights in profits on

such sales;

(B) immediately after, and in conjunction with each such

sale, accepts payment by such member or members of such gold to

satisfy existing repurchase obligations of such member or

members so that the Fund retains ownership of the gold at the

conclusion of such payment; and

(C) uses the earnings on the investment of the profits of

such sales through a separate subaccount, only for the purpose

of providing debt relief from the Fund under the modified

Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) Initiative (as defined

in section 262p-6 of this title); and

(2) to support a decision that shall terminate the Special

Contingency Account 2 (SCA-2) of the Fund so that the funds in

the SCA-2 shall be made available to the poorest countries. Any

funds attributable to the United States participation in SCA-2

shall be used only for debt relief from the Fund under the

modified HIPC Initiative.

Sec. 286g742oo. Principles for International Monetary Fund lending

-STATUTE-

It is the policy of the United States to work to implement

reforms in the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to achieve the

following goals:

(1) Short-term balance of payments financing

Lending from the general resources of the Fund should

concentrate chiefly on short-term balance of payments financing.

(2) Limitations on medium-term financing

Use of medium-term lending from the general resources of the

Fund should be limited to a set of well-defined circumstances,

such as -

(A) when a member's balance of payments problems will be

protracted;

(B) such member has a strong structural reform program in

place; and

(C) the member has little or no access to private sources of

capital.

(3) Premium pricing

Premium pricing should be introduced for lending from the

general resources of the Fund, for greater than 200 percent of a

member's quota in the Fund, to discourage excessive use of Fund

lending and to encourage members to rely on private financing to

the maximum extent possible.

(4) Redressing misreporting of information

The Fund should have in place and apply systematically a strong

framework of safeguards and measures to respond to, correct, and

discourage cases of misreporting of information in the context of

a Fund program, including -

(A) suspending Fund disbursements and ensuring that Fund

lending is not resumed to members that engage in serious

misreporting of material information until such time as

remedial actions and sanctions, as appropriate, have been

applied;

(B) ensuring that members make early repayments, where

appropriate, of Fund resources disbursed on the basis of

misreported information;

(C) making public cases of serious misreporting of material

information;

(D) requiring all members receiving new disbursements from

the Fund to undertake annually independent audits of central

bank financial statements and publish the resulting audits; and

(E) requiring all members seeking new loans from the Fund to

provide to the Fund detailed information regarding their

internal control procedures, financial reporting and audit

mechanisms and, in cases where there are questions about the

adequacy of these systems, undertaking an on-site review and

identifying needed remedies.

The provisions of this agreement shall be complementary to the

provisions of the General Convention. In so far as any provision of

this agreement and any provisions of the General Convention relate

to the same subject matter, the two provisions shall, wherever

possible, be treated as complementary, so that both provisions

shall be applicable and neither shall narrow the effect of the

other; but in any case of absolute conflict, the provisions of this
