A delegation from the Republic of Serbia led by Governor of the National Bank Jorgovanka Tabaković will participate in the spring session of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank Group, which will be held from 18 to 24 April in Washington.
The Serbian delegation will hold talks with high representatives of the two financial institutions on current cooperation programmes, current trends and expectations for the future.
Meetings of the International Monetary and Financial Committee and the Joint Development Committee, the advisory bodies of these institutions, will also be held as part of the spring session.
Serbia will participate in the work of these committees through the Swiss delegation.
During the session, the focus will be on issues important for global financial stability due to the impact of the pandemic, geopolitical trends and climate change, then the prospects of the world economy and financial markets. Challenges for economic policies in conditions of global debt and inflation will also be discussed.
The Director General of the IMF is also expected to present the Global Policy Programme.
During this year’s spring session, Serbian representatives will have bilateral meetings with numerous institutions and investors who have shown great interest in Serbia, which ranks high on the map of desirable investment destinations, said a statement by the National Bank of Serbia.
