World Bank-IMF Annual Meetings in Marrakech Postponed to 2023
The World Bank Group-IMF Annual Meetings, initially scheduled to take place in Marrakech in October 2022, will take place in 2023, the two financial institutions announced in a press release this Monday.
“The planned World Bank Group-IMF Annual Meetings that were scheduled to take place in Marrakesh, Morocco, in October 2022, will now take place in Washington D.C. due to continuing uncertainty over the COVID-19 pandemic,” the release pointed out, adding that “the October 2023 Annual Meetings will be held in Marrakesh.”
The Annual Meetings are usually held for two consecutive years at the institutions’ Washington headquarters and every third year in another member country.
The Annual Meetings bring together central bankers, ministers of finance and development, private sector executives, civil society, media and academics to discuss issues of global concern, including the world economic outlook, global financial stability, poverty eradication, inclusive economic growth and job creation, climate change, and others.
