Overview

The International Economics department will host a senior IMF official for a presentation of the managing director's Fall 2013 Global Policy Agenda (GPA).

The Global Policy Agenda, recently issued by the International Monetary Fund, shows that economic activity is strengthening in advanced economies and that global financial conditions are progressively moving towards normalization. However, issues remain in addressing residual imbalances and further macroeconomic coordination between surplus and deficit countries.

This roundtable will offer the opportunity to present the GPA, highlight where systemic risks and weaknesses lie and promote a discussion on how global economic growth and financial stability can be further enhanced.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
