HA NOI (Biz Hub) — Jonathan Dunn is the new chief resident representative of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in Viet Nam, replacing Sanjay Kalra Kahn who completed his four-year tenure.

Dunn has taken over at a crucial time, as the IMF was working closely to build ties with Viet Nam, Governor of the State Bank of Vietnam (SBV) Nguyen Van Binh said at a reception held for the new IMF representative on July 29.

Previously, Dunn has served as the IMF chief representative in Bangladesh and Tajikistan.

The IMF is an organisation of 188 countries, working to foster global monetary co-operation, secure financial stability, facilitate international trade and promote high employment and sustainable economic growth, as well as reduce poverty across the world.
