2020 IMF and World Bank Annual Meetings: Disappointing response to Coronavirus crisis

Last week was a crucial week for the citizens of developing countries, who are being hit hard by the Coronavirus crisis. They are facing increasing poverty, growing inequality and uncertain futures – and were looking to the world's leaders for decisive action.

What is clear is that world leaders and the Bretton Woods institutions need to take much more ambitious steps to deliver in the public interest.
