The tasks entrusted to the Banco de Portugal require a comprehensive, cross-cutting and intense international activity.
The Bank's international representation follows mainly from its participation in the work of the ECB and other European Union institutions.
The Bank also participates in other international economic and financial organisations, such as the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
The Banco de Portugal maintains cooperation relations with institutions from emerging and developing countries, especially with its counterparts in Portuguese-speaking countries.
