How trade can support post-pandemic recovery: A conversation with the IMF’s Kristalina Georgieva

July 21, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) extended important financial relief and assistance to support members during the pandemic, but what comes next? How does the IMF assess the prospects for recovery? Can the trading system facilitate the equitable distribution of vaccines? And as governments explore ways to reduce carbon emissions, what role will climate play in the future global trading system?

Cecilia Malmström
Nonresident Senior Fellow, Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE)


Kristalina Georgieva
Managing Director, IMF
