WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The International Monetary Fund said on Friday its 189 member countries had agreed to maintain the IMF’s $1 trillion in total lending resources while delaying changes to its shareholding structure to as late as December 2023.

IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva announced the decision at the IMF and World Bank fall meetings, saying that the move will provide confidence that the IMF can adequately support members as they deal with slowing global growth.
