The Indian prime minister stated that the reforms of the global institutions should be ongoing process to reflect the rising share of emerging economies.

NEW DELHI (Sputnik) — Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday called for the reform of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to increase the quotas of the emerging economies in order to reflect the economic reality properly.

"Even now, IMF quotas do not reflect the global economic realities. Changing quotas is not an issue of increasing the power of certain countries, it is issue of fairness and legitimacy. The believe that quotas can be changed is essential for the fairness of the system <…> And therefore [I am] very happy that IMF has decided to finalize the next round of quota changes by October 2017," Modi said at the Advancing Asia conference held in Indian capital.
