Financial Soundness Indicators

Courses that will be delivered from May to December 2023 by the IMF’s Institute for Capacity Development (ICD) will be published in a few weeks. 


JVI is gradually resuming classroom delivery. Courses not labelled as virtual are scheduled to take place at JVI, but may have to be delivered virtually in case safe travel to and in-person training in Vienna will not be possible. The decision to offer virtual instead of onsite training will be made within 5 weeks of the course start date.

All participants are expected to follow our COVID-19 Guidelines.
