High-level Panel on “Promoting an Inclusive Recovery”

June 15, 2021

Achieving inclusive growth—that is, strong and sustainable economic growth whose benefits are widely shared—is the key policy challenge of our day and thus a fundamental pillar of the IMF’s policy focus in the years ahead. Inequality has been rising in many countries, and large income disparities persist across regions, genders, ethnicities, and generations. The COVID-19 pandemic and economic and financial crises have further exposed these vulnerabilities, while longer-term trends, such as climate change and job-displacing technologies, if left unaddressed, pose serious challenges to inclusive growth.

On Tuesday, June 15 at 12:00 pm ET, the IMF convened a high-level panel to discuss how to ensure an inclusive recovery, featuring:

    • IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva
    • Cristina Duarte, Special Adviser on Africa to the United Nations Secretary-General, and Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations
    • Barry Eichengreen, George C. Pardee and Helen N. Pardee Professor of Economics and Political Science, University of California, Berkeley, co-author of the forthcoming book on “How to Achieve Inclusive Growth”
    • Moderator: Martin Sandbu, European Economics Commentator, Financial Times
