From April 16 to 22, 2018, experts from all over the world in the financial sector and politics would gather in Washington DC, United States to discuss issues bordering on global economy.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank Group are putting together a platform for key policy makers from around the globe to brainstorm on issues affecting the world at the moment.
Nigeria’s Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun and Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr Godwin Emefiele, are among experts expected to participate in the series of programmes lined up by the two world’s lenders.
During the seven-day Spring Meetings of the IMF and the World Bank, there would be seminars, regional briefings, press conferences and many other events with focus on global economy, international development and the world’s financial system.
Participants, which include central bankers, ministers of finance and development, parliamentarians, private sector executives, representatives from civil society organisations and the academia, will discuss issues of global concern, including the world economic outlook, poverty eradication, economic development and aid effectiveness.
Attendance to the IMF and World Bank Group Spring Meetings is by invitation only and all participants must be accredited in advance of the Meetings.
Some of the themes to look into by participants include ‘Building Trust and Resilience,’ ‘Flexible Inflation Targeting: Advancing the Frontiers of Monetary Policy,’ ‘New Challenges Facing the Global Economy,’ ‘Achieving Economic Diversification in Low Income Countries, Attracting Private Investment in Sub-Saharan Africa,’ ‘Moving from Financial Access to Inclusion: Leveraging the Power of Technology,’ and ‘Restoring Trust by Curbing Corruption’ amongst others.
