The 75th anniversary of the Bretton Woods Conference this summer represents a turning point. In 2019, multilateralism is under threat at a time when the most pressing challenges to economic growth – climate change, technological disruption, financial instability, etc. – are increasingly borderless. It is at this turning point that bold ideas are needed to forge a global economic system that works for the future while drawing lessons from the past.

As part of Bretton Woods@75a global dialogue to honor 75 years of economic progress and to revitalize the spirit of Bretton Woods now and for the future – the Bretton Woods Committee’s 36th Annual Meeting will convene a constructive dialogue among public, private, and multilateral leaders to encourage ideas for reimagining global economic governance. We will advance forward-looking recommendations to evolve and strengthen the Bretton Woods architecture and institutions for a rapidly changing world, and embolden a recommitment to international economic cooperation as a fundamental force for peace and prosperity.
