Join us virtually on Thursday, April 11 at 9:00 am ET for an #ACFrontPage keynote address and conversation featuring Kristalina Georgieva, managing director of the International Monetary Fund. Georgieva will deliver this important speech one week before the world’s finance ministers and central bank governors convene in Washington for the IMF-World Bank Spring Meetings.

This event comes at a delicate moment for the global economy. Cooling inflation and resilient growth have increased the chances of a soft landing. However, geopolitical conflict, the risk of economic fragmentation, and high debt burdens across a range of economies threaten the recovery. In her speech, the managing director will preview key takeaways from the forthcoming World Economic Outlook and Global Financial Stability Report and share the IMF’s agenda for the upcoming meetings. Georgieva will participate in a fireside chat with Frederick Kempe, President and Chief Executive Office of the Atlantic Council, following her speech.

This edition of #ACFrontPage, hosted by the Atlantic Council’s GeoEconomics Center, will be livestreamed on Atlantic Council TV, YouTube, Facebook, and X (formerly Twitter). To register virtually for this event, please complete the registration form.
