World Bank Group & IMF Spring Meetings

The Spring Meetings of the Boards of Governors of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank Group (WBG) bring together central bankers, ministers of finance and development, private sector executives, representatives from civil society organizations and academics to discuss issues of global concern.

Issues discussed include the world economic outlook, poverty eradication, economic development, and aid effectiveness. Also featured are seminars, regional briefings, press conferences, and many other events focused on the global economy, international development, and the world's financial system.  This year's events will take place in Washington, DC, April 21-23, 2017.

Our value

We are delighted to provide a background briefing book for the Spring Meetings. Selected articles from the Oxford Analytica Daily Brief provide analyses on how trade is driving politics more than growth, emerging markets growing old faster than growing rich, US protectionism raising worldwide trade costs and global prosperity possibly being reduced by a shift in US aid policy.

We also examine prospects for fintech in 2017-22, gender issues in Latin America, how Africa's cities will manage rapid growth and the effect of migration on Central America-Mexico tensions.

If you are a member of staff at the World Bank or the IMF, you are able to access all Oxford Analytica Daily Brief content via the Joint Bank-Fund Library or by contacting us directly.
