Communiqué of the Fifth Meeting of the Intergovernmental Group of Twenty-Four on International Monetary Affairs and Development (G-24), September 23, 1973, Nairobi, Kenya

The developing countries wish to emphasize that the present world economic reform exercise is essentially tripartite in character. As recognized in the mandate given to the Committee of Twenty by the Board of Governors of the Fund, the “reform of the international monetary system should be considered in relation to existing or prospective arrangements among countries, including those involving international trade, the flow of capital, investment or development assistance that could affect attainment of the purposes of the Fund under the present or amended Articles.”
