Dutch constituencies at IMF, World Bank and EBRD 2020
The Constituency Programme of the Dutch Ministry of Finance
The Constituency Programme of the Dutch Ministry of Finance aims to assist Ministries of Finance and affiliated organizations in constituency countries. Constituency countries are (potential) EU candidate member states and countries with historical ties to the Netherlands (Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Georgia, North-Macedonia, Moldova, Mongolia, Montenegro, Romania en Ukraine). The Dutch Ministry of Finance offers technical assistance to these countries in achieving (or promote awareness of) European and international standards in the area of transparent and solid public finances. Dutch best practices can be instrumental to achieve that aim.
This technical cooperation is:
- demand driven: based on firm requests for technical assistance from the country’s Ministries of Finance (or affiliated organisations);
- mainly delivered by our own experts, exchanging knowledge and experiences with their colleagues in the countries concerned. The experts apply an interactive and tailor made approach in trainings and other activities. The idea is to learn together, not teach.
- coordinated with the work of EU, International Financial Institutions (IFI’s) and other (bilateral) donors.
Area’s covered by the Constituency Programme Budget: budget process, audit and control, tax and customs, Public Private Partnerships (PPP’s), anti money laundering, debt and cash management, financial markets, financial education and other relevant EU issues (like EU coordination structures).
