The Peruvian capital Lima will host the 2015 meetings of the boards of governors of the World Bank and of the IMF, the International Monetary Fund.
Most Governors’ meetings are held every October in Washington but every three years the meetings take place in a different city. .
Lima will now be the the third Latin American city to host the meetings, after Mexico City (1952) and Rio de Janeiro in Brasil, in 1967. The 2012 meetings were held in Japan.
The event brings together central bankers, ministers of finance and development, private sector executives and academics. Over 10,000 participants are expected to discuss important global issues, including the world economic outlook, poverty eradication, economic development, and
the effectiveness of aid. There will also be seminars and many other events, focussed on global economy and international development.
