IMF-World Bank annual meetings kick off

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank 2021 annual meetings have kicked off on Monday in a hybrid format from Oct. 11-17.

The meetings will bring together central bankers, ministers of finance and development, parliamentarians, private sector executives, representatives from civil society organisations and academics to discuss issues that grasp the global attention, including the world economic outlook, poverty eradication, economic development, and aid effectiveness.

They will involve holding seminars, regional briefings, press conferences, and many other events focused on the global economy, international development, and the world’s financial system that will be held virtually as well.

Ahead of the meetings, the IMF and the WBG have published a number of reports and blogs on key themes of the global economic outlook, including in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) that featured Egypt’s economic outlook forecasts as well amid the ongoing challenges imposed by the pandemic.
