The Department of Treasury supports global development progress as well as US national security and economic interests overseas by promoting strong financial sector stability and sound economic governance in developing countries. Treasury also manages the US relationship with international financial institutions such as the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, several regional development banks, and key multilateral funds. Meanwhile, the Department’s control of US economic sanctions shapes financial activity and the provision of humanitarian and development aid in select contexts. CGD’s analysis of Treasury’s international work aims to strengthen its development focus and promote leadership and constructive engagement in multilateral institutions.
