2017 Total The voting share of developing countries in many international organizations remained largely unchanged in 2017, as negotiations on governance reform are still ongoing. However some increases in the voting share of developing countries were observed at the International Monetary Fund (from 37.2 per cent in 2016 to 37.7 per cent in 2017) and the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (part of the World Bank Group) (from 37.9 per cent in 2016 to 38.8 per cent in 2017) as a part of previously agreed reforms.
