Regional Technical Assistance Centers (RTACs)

The IMF has a global network of centers that coordinate much of its capacity development work in countries. Tailored to regional priorities, centers work closely with member countries and development partners to respond quickly to emerging needs. Member and host countries, as well as external partners help IMF finance these centers. Their activities are complemented by IMF’s thematic funds.
