Jay Shambaugh, U.S. Treasury Under Secretary for International Affairs
Nancy Lee, Director of the Sustainable Development Finance Program and Senior Policy Fellow, Center for Global Development
NEW DATE: This event has been rescheduled to Thursday, September 7 from Tuesday, September 5.
Debt distress, successive economic shocks, and mounting transboundary challenges have placed a spotlight on the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and its role in promoting macroeconomic stability and strong growth fundamentals around the world. Given that critical role, how can the Fund’s members ensure that it is best equipped to address these challenges? Given its unique mandate, what are tangible ways the IMF can help emerging markets and developing countries in particular?
Jay Shambaugh, U.S. Treasury Under Secretary for International Affairs, will speak about U.S. policy priorities in ongoing IMF reform efforts in the context of the broader international financial architecture. His speech will be followed by a discussion with Nancy Lee, CGD Senior Policy Fellow and Director of CGD's Sustainable Development Finance program.
