“So that the World economy stronger and more resilient in a more crash-prone world, it is vital to reach an agreement to increase IMF quota resources before the end of the year,” he said.

What are IMF quotas?

Dues are the fundamental components of the financial and governance structure of the IMF. Each member country’s quota broadly reflects its relative economic position in the world economy. The quotas are denominated in special drawing rights (SDR), which is the unit of account of the IMF.

  • Resource contributions: The quotas determine the maximum amount of financial resources that a country is obliged to provide to the IMF.
  • Number of votes: Quotas are a key factor that determines voting power in IMF decisions. Member countries have one vote for every SDR 100,000 of quota plus the basic votes, which are the same for all countries.
  • Access to financing: Quotas determine the maximum amount of loans that a member country can obtain from the IMF under normal access conditions.
  • SDR allocations: Quotas determine each country’s share of an overall SDR allocation.


International Monetary Fund (IMF).


The IMF Board of Governors carries out general quota reviews at least every five years. The two main issues addressed in a general quota review are the magnitude of the overall increase in quotas and the distribution of the increase among member countries.

If it determines that an increase is needed, the Board of Governors considers the amount of the overall increase and how to distribute it among member countries. Any modification of the quotas must be approved by a 85% of the total votes, and the share of a member country cannot be modified without its consent.
