The Institute is a center of excellence that contributes to national capacity development in public financial management and governance through training, networking, research and publications. We also facilitate access to economic and financial information and operate our public library, the Library of Finance.
Beyond its national mission, the Institute serves as a platform for regional cooperation as it hosts the Secretariat of the GIFT-MENA network of civil service training schools and is a regional training center for the World Customs Organization (WCO).
It is an autonomous public institution operating under the tutelage of the Lebanese Minister of Finance.
