SPECIAL EVENT WITH PRESIDENT OF THE WORLD BANK GROUP DAVID MALPASS - The Atlantic Council GeoEconomics Center hosted an AC Front Page event featuring David Malpass. Malpass participated in this keynote event at the Atlantic Council studios one week before the world’s finance ministers and central bank governors convened in Washington for the World Bank-International Monetary Fund Spring Meetings.
A global cost of living crisis, supply-chain disruptions, and climate change threaten growth prospects for developing countries, with some at risk of debt default in 2023. Sustainable, efficient mobilization of both public and private capital is vital to ensure prosperity for the decade ahead. Malpass will shared his vision for how the World Bank Group can respond to global challenges and help foster inclusive growth around the world. Malpass participated in a fireside chat moderated by Lisa Abramowicz, co-host of “Bloomberg Surveillance.”

From publishing timely commentary and analysis, to providing a platform for leaders re-imagining the global financial system, the GeoEconomics Center works at the intersection of foreign policy, finance, and economics to help shape a better global economic future.
