Evolution of International Monetary Fund (IMF) quotas and voting power, 2014-2018 

Source: IMF,


The map shows state quotas in the IMF, which translates as the voting shares they have for each decision put to vote. The United States, which has the most, also holds a right of veto, before Japan and China. The most recent reform gave more power to so-called emerging countries (China, whose quota shares were doubled, Brazil, Mexico, South Korea, Iran, Turkey, Colombia, and Poland), whereas the influence of so-called early industrialized countries decreased (United States and Canada, Western and Northern Europe, and Japan).
