Body

The Bretton Woods Committee was delighted to once again partner with the Italian Banking Insurance and Finance Federation at the 2018 Rome Investment Forum: Financing Long-Term Europe. This event was part of our Bretton Woods@75 initiative: a global dialogue to honor 75 years of economic progress and to revitalize the spirit of Bretton Woods now and for the future.

Executive Director Randy Rodgers led a discussion titled, Making Multilateralism Effective and Inclusive: Lessons from the Past and Reforms for the Future. While the multilateralism of the past 75 years has brought tremendous economic growth and lifted billions out of poverty the gains of globalization must be better shared while also preparing for future shifts in economic power, demographics, climate, and technology. He encouraged participants and global leaders to consider how to evolve the Bretton Woods architecture for a rapidly changing world, and to have the will and foresight to act in coordination and harmonization for the betterment of the future global economy, in the spirit of Bretton Woods.
