CEF Events from the 2020 IMF-World Bank Annual Meetings

October 22, 2020.


The IMF’s Middle East Center for Economics and Finance (CEF), in collaboration with the Middle East and Central Asia Department, has delivered at the 2020 IMF-World Bank Annual Meetings two virtual sessions (the first in Arabic, the second in English) related to the design and delivery of CEF virtual courses.

The sessions started with an overview of the CEF’s virtual course program and strategy, followed by a virtual interactive presentation and an illustrative workshop. In addition to the CEF website, the recordings of the two virtual CEF events are posted on YouTube and on the IMF’s website.
