The Spirit of Bretton Woods: Multilateral Leadership in Turbulent Times

During its 33rd Annual Meeting, the Bretton Woods Committee will convene a constructive dialogue among public and multilateral leaders, Committee members, and experts across business, government and civil society to evaluate the state of the global economy and the critical role the multilateral institutions must play in managing risks, and capitalizing on opportunities.

This year, we will consider a new set of emerging global challenges – such as the difficult Chinese rebalance, effects of asynchronous monetary policy in advanced economies, fragility across emerging markets and developing countries from the commodity crunch, war, and refugee crises, implementation of climate change and sustainable development initiatives, among others – and we will discuss what strong multilateral leadership looks like in addressing these global issues.

Confirmed speakers include:
•Ambassador Michael Froman, U.S. Trade Representative
•Jacob J. Lew, Secretary, U.S. Department of the Treasury
•David Lipton, First Deputy Managing Director, Interational Monetary Fund
•Sri Mulyani Indrawati, Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer, World Bank Group
•Helene Gayle, CEO, McKinsey Social Institute
•Eric G. Postel, Associate Administrator, USAID
•Craig Steffensen, Representative, North American Representative Office, Asian Development Bank
