Around 90 officials of the German Finance Ministry work in other countries all over the world. This series of articles will give you an insight into the everyday lives of our representatives who work at German embassies and with supranational and international organisations. This instalment takes us back to Washington, D.C., this time to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Sandro Maluck works in the office of the German Executive Director. He answers queries about IMF programmes, compares and coordinates positions, and thus acts as a link between the German government and the IMF.
