2022 IMF, World Bank Spring Meetings begin April 18th

This year’s International Monetary Fund and World Bank Group (WBG) Spring Meetings will start from April 18th through to April 24th, 2022.

The meeting will be largely virtual.

However, the International Monetary and Financial Committee (IMFC) and Development Committee (DC) meetings will be held in hybrid format and participants of those restricted meetings may participate in person or virtually.

Public events including the seminars and other public events, Civil Society Organization engagements, and press conferences—will be virtual and accessible on IMF and World Bank digital platforms.

To accommodate time-differences, events may take place in the week before and after the Spring Meetings.

The IMF and WBG said they will continue to monitor the worldwide health situation and if needed, amend the plan in accordance with relevant [World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] guidance.

The World Bank Group President will hold a press conference on April 20.

He will answer questions from media around the world and provide updates on the Bank Group’s efforts to respond to myriad crises around the world, as well as to help developing countries manage uncertainty and deliver green, resilient, and inclusive development.
