Welcome to SARTTAC

South Asia Regional Training and Technical Assistance Center (SARTTAC) is a collaborative venture between the IMF, the member countries (Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Sri Lanka), and development partners. The Center’s strategic goal is to help its member countries strengthen their institutional and human capacity to design and implement macroeconomic and financial policies that promote growth and reduce poverty.

Less than a year after IMF Managing Director Ms. Christine Lagarde and the Finance Minister of India, Mr. Arun Jaitley, signed a historic Memorandum of Understanding to establish a capacity development center for South Asia, the opening of SARTTAC marks a major milestone in the partnership between the IMF and its member countries in the region.

SARTTAC will allow the IMF to meet more of the high demand for technical assistance and training from the region and contribute to its ability to bring growth and stability to the region. Through its team of international resident experts, SARTTAC is expected to become the focal point for the delivery of IMF capacity development services to South Asia. Read More
