West Bank and Gaza: At a Glance

The IMF established an office of the IMF Resident Representative for West Bank and Gaza in July 1995, to help fulfill the IMF’s mandate to assist the Palestinian Authority as specified under the Oslo Accords. West Bank and Gaza is not a member country of the IMF, and the IMF can therefore not lend to West Bank and Gaza. The IMF does provide technical services to West Bank and Gaza, including: (i) policy advice in the macroeconomic, fiscal, and financial areas; as well as (ii) technical assistance, with a focus on tax administration, public financial management, banking supervision and regulation, and statistics. As a member of the Ad Hoc Liaison Committee (AHLC, established in 1993 following the signing of the first Oslo Accord to coordinate the delivery of international development assistance to the Palestinian Authority), the IMF—alongside UNSCO, the World Bank and the Quartet—also publishes regular reports as an input to the usually biannual AHLC meetings.
