South Sudan IMF’s 188th member


The Republic of South Sudan joined the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on Thursday when its Finance and Economic Planning Minister Kosti Manibe Ngai signed the IMF’s Articles of Agreement at a ceremony in Washington DC. “I am happy to welcome the Republic of South Sudan, which today becomes our 188th member,” IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde said. “South Sudan faces enormous challenges, and the IMF will do its best to assist the country in setting up the foundations for economic stability and growth in the period ahead,” Lagarde underscored. South Sudan applied for membership of the IMF in April 2011.
The Republic of South Sudan became an independent country in July 2011, and the IMF Board of Governors subsequently offered it IMF membership. Since then, the Fund has been stepping up the provision of technical assistance and training and engaging in a policy dialogue with the authorities in the areas of tax and customs administration, public financial management, oil revenue management, exchange rate policy, central banking, and macroeconomic statistics.
The Fund is coordinating with donors and technical assistance providers to support South Sudan through a dedicated trust fund for capacity-building of about $11 million over the next four years, and to which the European Union plans to come on board as a lead donor.
South Sudan’s initial quota in the IMF is SDR 123.0 million (about $189.3 million). With the inclusion of South Sudan, IMF members’ quotas amount to SDR 238.12 billion (about $366.53 billion).

Nevertheless, that does not mean that the product is a fake.
Identify your own hair trouble and go for a product which mainly addresses your needs.

I confess that I was a little bit skeptical at initially.
Yet, lack of moisture can also cause breakage, split-ends
and brittle hair. There are many products these days that can help with
keeping your hair in good condition but what of oils.

If one innocently applies an insufficient amount of
sealer on a very porous concrete material, the
said material may not be effective at all. Make sure that
you don't end up with a look of patches by checking to see that the glitter falls all the way around the edges of a newly-painted area. Flawless Flooring's polished concrete
floor product boasts durability and decorative seamless surfaces made mainly from epoxy and polyurethane materials.

This is the only way to ensure good products in hand and great value for your hard earned money.
Or, when we speak of American capitalism, do we mean jobs for our people, medical care for all of us, decent wages and decent retirements.
Newspaper production is known to be the most lucrative and respected
industry in the modern age. Newspaper companies should
be seeking to have subscribers to their service where
breaking news can be emailed and send to blackberries and cell-phones.

The contempt he held for America had little to do with
politics and democracy.
