The global recession demonstrates how intertwined the global economy has become. Given this new reality, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has looked into how to refocus and sharpen IMF surveillance. At this event, participants will exchange views on the IMF’s Pilot External Sector Report which analyses the sources of, and cures for, global current account imbalances and volatile capital flows - and offers a new strategy to reboot country reports by adding inward and outward spillovers.

Attendance is by invitation only.

This event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
