Financing Growth in the Asia Pacific Conference
The Financing Growth in the Asia Pacific conference is being organized just before the spring World Bank & International Monetary Fund (IMF) meetings, which draw the world’s top financial sector policy makers and business executives to Washington, D.C. CSIS will bring together key thought leaders, business executives, and policy makers from the United States and Asia for a discussion on how key economic trends relate to the geostrategic priorities of the dynamic Asia Pacific region.
