Morocco, “Perfect Place” for IMF-World Bank Annual Meetings

Morocco, a country that bridges Africa, the Middle East and Europe, is the “perfect place” for holding the upcoming annual meetings of the World Bank Group and International Monetary Fund, the IMF managing Director Kristalina Georgieva said in a video published Saturday on Twitter.

“Thrilled to be back in Morocco- a country that bridges Africa, the Middle East and Europe. The perfect place for our annual meetings”, scheduled for October 9 to 15 in Marrakesh, she tweeted, using the hashtag #Marrakech 2023.

The video, which gathered thousands of views a few hours after its posting, was recorded in front of the centuries-old historical site of Chellah in Rabat, where the IMF managing Director started an official visit.

She recalled that in just four months the international finance community will gather in Marrakesh.

“I cannot think of a better place, Morocco is a country that bridges Africa, the Middle east, Europe, a crossroad, and a place where ideas flourish. A country with rich culture, great traditions, strong and vibrant economy, but above all a country of wonderful people”, she added.

The week-long IMF and World Bank meetings bring together central bank governors, finance ministers, representatives of academia, business leaders, parliamentarians, members of civil society organizations, and journalists to discuss policy issues, including global economic prospects, financial stability, poverty eradication, inclusive economic growth and job creation and climate change.

Nearly 14,000 delegates from 189 member countries of these two institutions are expected to attend this major meeting, which is held mainly in Washington and, every three years, in a member country other than the United States.
