This press conference is a unique opportunity for African Governors to express their views on issues of interest to them with regards to their relations with the IMF and the World Bank. This is also, indeed, an opportunity for the reporters to get first-hand information from some of the people who struggle on a daily basis with the debt burden, poverty and pandemics.
|September 27, 2002 -- Transcript of a Press Conference of the Intergovernmental Group of Twenty-Four on International Monetary Affairs and Development|
Ministers expressed concern about the deterioration in the world economy, and noted that risks to the outlook remained on the downside. In particular, there was much concern about the fragility in investor confidence and the decline in the equity markets, which has been due in part to problems in corporate governance in industrial countries.
|August 29, 2002 -- Transcript of a Press Briefing By Thomas C. Dawson, Director, External Relations Department, IMF|

|April 19, 2002 -- Transcript of a Press Briefing with G-24 Ministers|
|November 14, 2001 -- G-24 Press Conference Transcript|
Ministers expressed concern about the sharp slowdown in activity, especially the synchronized nature of the downturn among the three major economies; that is, those of the United States of America, Germany, and Japan. These negative developments will severely affect developing countries through lower external demand for our products, declining commodity prices, lower tourist receipts, and a sharp fall in access to foreign direct investment and capital markets, along with much higher spreads in the cost of financing.

|March 07, 2001 -- Transcript of a Press Conference on the Outcomes of the Recent Köhler/Wolfensohn Trip to Africa by IMF African Department Director, G.G. Gondwe and World Bank Vice-President, African Region, Callisto Madavo|
What's new from this trip is that, for the first time, I think we have the African leaders in a sense taking ownership of what they want to do in Africa, what is their vision, what are their programs, what are their constraints, on one side, and, therefore, what are the responsibilities that they need to discharge, and then asking the Bank and the Fund, given the backdrop of those objectives, to help.

There will be a number of events, meetings and so on, that the Fund management and staff will be having in anticipation and in the run-up to the Annual Meetings, particularly what I think I would describe as outreach, both with nongovernmental organizations and civil society, but also with media events in the three months prior, running up to the meetings.
|May 04, 2000 -- Transcript of a Press Briefing by Thomas Dawson, Director, IMF External Relations Department|
The new Managing Director did arrive at approximately 8:05 on Tuesday morning, May 2nd, and is at work.
|April 15, 2000 -- Transcript of a Press Conference by the G-24 Ministers|
Much work remains to be done in order to reduce the gap between the richest and the poorest countries of the world. With this in mind, the communique underscores the importance of strengthening the efforts to fight poverty, including the timely and adequate funding of the Enhanced HIPC Initiative and lowering barriers to developing country exports.
|January 12, 2000 -- Transcript of a press briefing by videoteleconference by Michel Camdessus, Managing Director, IMF, in advance of the Conference of African Heads of State, in Libreville, Gabon|
We have been in a dialogue with your countries throughout these past years, and particularly last year, and you have told us in very clear words that this fight against poverty, this fight for reducing debt is a decisive obstacle to development.
|April 23, 1999 -- Transcript of a World Bank/IMF Press Briefing on the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HIPCs) Debt Initiative|
