- Dominique Strauss-Kahn - G20 - IMF
Honouring its commitment
At the last G20 summit, held in London in April, the Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Dominique Strauss-Kahn promised to double the amount of financial aid to poor countries. In an interview with FRANCE 24, Strauss-Kahn reports that the IMF is honouring this commitment and an agreement has now been finalised.
The current exceptional credit crisis requires exceptional measures: the financial assistance will therefore take the form of zero percent loans. This is a first in the history of the IMF.
