Spring Meetings

Each spring, thousands of government officials, journalists, civil society organizations, and participants from the academia and private sectors, gather in Washington DC for the Spring Meetings of the World Bank Group and the International Monetary Fund. Seminars, regional briefings, press conferences, and many other events focused on the global economy, international development, and the world's financial markets will also be featured. This year's Spring Meetings events will take place in Washington, DC, April 21-23, 2017. The plenary session of the IMF and World Bank Group's Boards of Governors is scheduled only during the Annual Meetings in autumn.
