Bundesbank’s Dombret Says IMF Currently Has Sufficient Funds

October 15, 2011

Oct. 15 (Bloomberg) -- Bundesbank board member Andreas Dombret said the International Monetary Fund has sufficient funds for now.

“The Bundesbank has always advocated that the IMF, as a quota-based institution, be equipped with sufficient funds to fulfil its important global function,” Dombret said in an e- mailed response to a question. “To ensure this, the Bundesbank has always been a reliable partner of the IMF and has made contributions within the framework of bilateral and multilateral credit lines in addition to its quota-based provisioning of funds. From the point of view of the Bundesbank, the IMF is currently endowed with sufficient funds.”
