In the early 1990s, three special loans were made under financing facilities. Of the last three stand-by agreements approved by the IMF in 2009, 2011 and 2013, Romania made withdrawals of SDR 10.57 billion 1 (approximately 11.9 billion euros) from the one approved in 2009 alone.

The agreements approved in 2011 and 2013 were of a preventive nature, the Romanian authorities not making any withdrawals from the approved amounts (approximately 3.5 billion euros in 2011 and 1.98 billion euros in 2013).
