David Malpass on the Future of Global Development and the Role of the World Bank

March 23, 2023 • 1:30 – 2:30 pm EDT

Please join CSIS for this event on the role of the World Bank and the private sector in the future of global development. Since its founding in 1947, the World Bank Group has funded over 12,000 development projects across its 189 member countries, via traditional loans, interest-free credits, and grants.

Under the leadership of President David Malpass, the World Bank Group has mobilized over $440 billion in response to pressing global crises. President Malpass doubled climate financing in developing countries, and his dedication to alleviating global poverty and improving standards of living through private sector engagement has defined the work of the World Bank Group over the past four years.

As the World Bank enters a new chapter, it will need to remember the crucial role that the private sector plays in promoting growth in developing countries. Please join CSIS in welcoming President Malpass for an interview on the topic and stay tuned for an in-depth panel discussion with leading experts and scholars. 

This event was made possible through general support to CSIS.
