As the global community continues to grapple with the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Atlantic Council is open for business. Our business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please read an update from our President and CEO.

An #ACFrontPage event

Atlantic Council Front Page is our premier live ideas platform for global leaders to discuss the defining challenges of our time.

Atlantic Council Front Page is a new virtual event series featuring top newsmakers across multiple digital platforms. Harnessing the convening power and expertise of the Council’s thirteen programs and centers, #ACFrontPage leverages the Council’s capabilities in social media, press, and digital outreach to spotlight the world’s most prominent leaders and the most compelling ideas across sectors and engage new audiences eager for nonpartisan and constructive solutions to current global challenges. This widely promoted program features the Council’s most important guests and content serving as the highlight of our programming each week.

The coronavirus pandemic has triggered the worst global economic crisis since the Great Depression. The International Monetary Fund’s Managing Director, Kristalina Georgieva, is leading her institution’s work to help save the global economy. The IMF has begun to leverage the full capacity of the institution’s $1 trillion in financial firepower, from emergency financing to debt relief. What’s next for the IMF as the economic impact of the crisis spreads across the world? Can the global economy recover later this year? How might ‘the Great Lockdown’ reshape globalization, trade, and the future of work?

Join us for a live discussion with the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund Kristalina Georgieva on the IMF’s COVID-19 response and the way forward for the global economy.

This timely discussion is part of the new #ACFrontPage event series, a live ideas platform spotlighting global leaders who are championing constructive solutions to global challenges.

Please note that this event will not feature an in-person audience. You will be able to view this discussion live through YouTube.
