IMF Censures Argentina for Not Sharing Accurate Economy Data

The International Monetary Fund said it censured Argentina for not providing accurate data on inflation and economic growth under a procedure that can end in expulsion.

The declaration of censure was adopted today by the IMF’s board of 24 directors, the Washington-based fund said in a statement. While it doesn’t have immediate effects, the decision takes the country a step closer to sanctions that include being barred access to IMF loans.
