A Conversation with Christine Lagarde on the Global Economy
A Conversation with:
International Monetary Fund
President and CEO
Please join us on Thursday, April 9, 2015 from 10:30 am to 11:30 am for a conversation with Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Money Fund, to discuss the future role of the International Monetary Fund in a fast-changing global economy. A keynote speech will be delivered by Madame Lagarde, and then Atlantic Council President and CEO Frederick Kempe will moderate a conversation including questions from the audience.
Madame Lagarde will join the Atlantic Council before welcoming leading economic policymakers from across the world as they gather in Washington for the IMF’s annual spring meetings the next week.
Despite the recent boost from cheaper oil and sustained US growth, global economic recovery is still impeded by high public debt, high unemployment, and insufficient public investment. As the great recession demonstrated, the role of the IMF is pivotal in navigating uneven economic growth patterns. Christine Lagarde will discuss how a strong IMF can reduce tensions among global players and support fragile economies for the benefit of the global community into the future.
