To try to nudge his still-evolving policies away from protectionism, world finance leaders are gathering on U.S. President Donald Trump’s home turf on Thursday. In addition, they will show broad support for open trade and global integration.
The International Monetary Fund and World Bank spring meetings bring the two multilateral institutions’ 189 members face-to-face with Trump’s “America First” agenda for the first time. The meeting will take place just two blocks from the White House.
A former IMF board official who is now with the Centre for International Governance Innovation, said, “These meetings will all be about Trump and the implications of his policies for the international agenda.”
