IMF, World Bank move annual meetings to 2023

The continuing uncertainty over the COVID-19 pandemic has prompted the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank to push their regular annual meetings back another year to October 2023. In an announcement, the institutions said this year’s meetings will be held in Washington instead of Morocco. Marrakesh, which originally was to host in 2020, will be the site of next year’s event. The 2020 meeting was held virtually and the 2021 meeting in a hybrid format as travel was curtailed due to the ongoing risks of COVID-19. The IMF and WB meetings take place over a week and usually draw thousands of officials, bankers, activists, and journalists.
