The European Union prepared to consider possibility of having non-European lead IMF in the future

PORTO, Portugal -- The European Union is prepared to consider the possibility of a non-European heading the International Monetary Fund after the next managing director completes his term, Portuguese Finance Minister Fernando Teixeira dos Santos said Saturday.

Europe and the United States have traditionally divided the top jobs at the IMF and the World Bank, with the EU picking the head of the IMF and the U.S. choosing who should lead the World Bank.

However, several large developing countries have complained about the system as they seek a greater voice in how the two financial institutions are run.

British Finance Minister Alistair Darling has also said it is time for the system to change and both posts should be open to candidates from other parts of the world.

The EU has put forward former French Finance Minister Dominique Strauss-Kahn to replace current IMF Managing Director Rodrigo de Rato for a five-year term, but dos Santos said that the EU could open up the selection procedure after that.

"We are willing to discuss, after the mandate of the next managing director, who we expect to be a European, a different procedure that could deliver a different outcome," Dos Santos told reporters after hosting a meeting of finance ministers from the 27-member EU.

The EU is likely to insist that any concessions it makes are matched by the United States in its hold over the World Bank job.

    葡萄牙波爾多消息 -- 歐盟準備好考慮在下一任主席結束任期時由非歐洲人來領導國際貨幣基金,葡萄牙經濟部長Fernando Teixeira dos Santos如是說。



    英國的經濟部長Alistair Darling也說這個系統改變的時候已經來臨,而且這兩個位置也應該開放給世界上其他地區的候選人來競逐。

    歐盟已經提名前法國經濟部長Dominique Strauss-Kahn來接手現任IMF主席Rodrigo de Rato進行下一個五年任期,不過dos Santos說在這之後歐盟可能會開放這個選舉的程序。

    「在下一任主席的任命之後,我們很願意討論原本預期是歐洲人擔任的主席選舉制度可以產生不一樣的結果,」Dos Santos在歐盟27個會員國經濟部長會議之後告訴記者。
