IMF / World Bank 2018

IMF / World Bank Annual Meetings

12-14 October 2018 | Bali, Indonesia

The Annual Meetings of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank bring together around 10,000 people - the most senior leaders of the world's governments, along with the private sector, academics and civil society - to follow the work of these two mammoth finance and development bodies.  The Meetings themselves are accompanied by a multi-day Civil Society Policy Forum that allows civil society groups to openly share their views and perspectives.

As with last year, two high priorities for the Meetings will include discussion around the Sustainable Development Goals, and improving international financial stability. These will be accompanied by sessions and discussion around a wide variety of relevant topics; last year's session included seminars addressing , the future of work, climate change, immigration, inclusive growth, education, inequality, trade, globalisation, fighting corruption, and women's economic empowerment.

Of course, it's only appropriate that our delegates should explore Bali - so as well as the Annual Meetings, they'll visit cultural sights, meet with dignitaries, NGOs, and thinktank experts, and have some free time to explore this beautiful island.
