The Government have today augmented the UK’s 2010 agreement to lend to the International Monetary Fund’s Poverty Reduction and Growth Trust by a total of 2 billion Special Drawing Rights (approximately £2.2 billion) to support economic recovery and response to COVID-19 in the most vulnerable countries. This takes the total UK agreement to up to 4 billion Special Drawing Rights (approximately £4.4 billion). A copy of the agreement will be deposited in the Libraries of both Houses in due course.
