“The Bretton Woods Committee has performed a valuable role for the world community by providing important recommendations to governments and to the leaders of the IMF and World Bank.”
– Jean-Claude Trichet, Committee Member and former President of The European Central Bank
The Multilateral Roundtable provides a forum for representatives from the international financial institutions and private sector organizations to explore issues that relate directly to private sector development, commercial opportunities, and social responsibility.
The Roundtable was initiated in 2005 on the premise that the private and public sectors must work more closely together in order to successfully expand commercial opportunities in emerging and developing markets and to promote sustainable development.
The Multilateral Roundtable seeks to:
- Increase the capacity of the multilateral institutions to promote open markets and international commerce,
- Increase the capacity of member companies to identify public-private partnerships, and
- Deepen the dialogue between the private sector and the multilateral institutions and explore ways to deepen a mutually beneficial relationship.
