2023 World Bank Group/International Monetary Fund Annual Meeting

Morocco, host country of the Annual Meetings of the World Bank Group and the International Monetary Fund

The Annual Meetings of the World Bank Group (WBG) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) constitute the major annual meeting of international finance, bringing together the major figures, the Ministers of Finance and the Governors of the central banks of 189 member countries of these institutions as well as representatives of the private sector, NGOs, and academia.

The designation of Morocco reinforces the reputation of the Kingdom as a privileged destination for the organization of major international conferences and the choice of Marrakech confirms its reputation as an international city open to the world. The Assemblies will be held at Bab Ighli, formerly the main gateway to the medina which takes its name from the guards in charge of protecting access. Huge expanse of more than 300 hectares located at the exit of the city in the direction of Ourika, Bab Ighli, hosted in November 2016 the COP22 for the climate and its 30,000 participants as well as the First African Summit of action for the climate. In 2014, at the same place, the 5th Global Entrepreneurship Summit was held, which brought together Heads of State, high-level government representatives and more than 3,000 entrepreneurs.

Given the quality of the participants, the 2023 Annual Meetings offer the Kingdom the opportunity to strengthen its attractiveness and promote its image: a stable and tolerant country, open and dynamic, rich in its intangible heritage, its secular history, its culture , its gastronomy…and marked by the advances made over the last 20 years on the democratic, social and economic levels.

"Morocco is an ideal location for the annual meeting of the IMF and the World Bank, which is one of the largest and most open gatherings of major economic decision-makers from around the world". "We are grateful to Morocco for agreeing to organize this assembly," said Kristalina Georgieva, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund, describing the Kingdom as "an increasingly essential economic player and gateway to Africa. and the Middle East".
