The IMF will be the principal training provider for the CEF in the area macroeconomic management. Training outside the core areas of expertise of the IMF will be delivered by other organizations, such as, the World Bank, WTO, and OECD. Furthermore, and in line with the CEF's objective to collaborate closely with regional institutions, the CEF started recently to conduct some joint training courses with the Arab Monetary Fund in Abu Dhabi. Courses are offered generally in Arabic or in English with interpretation into Arabic.
