Around these meetings, the World Bank and the IMF organize a number of forums to facilitate the interaction of governments and Bank-IMF staff with non-governmental organizations (NGOs), journalists, and the private sector. Indeed, every effort is made to ensure that the Annual Meetings provide an effective forum for explaining to the public—directly and through the media—the tasks, objectives, and outcomes of the work of the World Bank and the IMF. In this manner, the Meetings make a major contribution to openness and transparency.
