No fewer than 13,000 people are expected at this year’s meeting of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. The annual event, which opens on Tuesday, will take place in Washington D.C., the United States.
It will bring together governors of various central banks, ministers of finance and development, private sector executives, civil society, and academics. Participants are expected to discuss issues of global concern including the world economic outlook, global financial stability, poverty eradication, jobs and growth, economic development, and aid effectiveness among others.
Top government officials from Nigeria are also expected at the meeting and would possibly share experiences on what the Federal Government has been doing to address income inequalities, job creation, and improve the nation’s human resources.
The meeting is also expected to offer an opportunity for civil society organisations to share their views and interact with policymakers in a global setting.
