World Bank – IMF Annual Meetings Kick Off in Marrakech

The Annual Meetings of the World Bank (WB) Group and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) kicked off on Monday, October 9, in Marrakech. 

The annual meetings will bring together approximately 12,000 high-level participants, including 180 official delegations led by the Ministers of Economy and/or Finance and the Governors of Central Banks. 

The meetings will also include a plenary session, during which Governors take up matters of business, make decisions on how current international monetary issues should be addressed, and approve corresponding resolutions.

Several seminars will be held in parallel with the meetings, including seminars designed to foster creative dialogue among the private sector, government delegates, and senior World Bank (WB) and International Monetary Fund (IMF) officials.

This year’s edition in Marrakech, a first in the Arab world, marks the return of these meetings to Africa following those held for the first time in Nairobi, Kenya, 50 years ago.

For senior officials from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank (WB), these meetings will highlight the significant role that Morocco plays in the international community, providing the ideal space for discussing the challenges facing the region and the world at a crucial time in the global economy.
