International Monetary Fund. Secretary's Department

Abstract

Gentlemen, as Chairman of the Boards of Governors of the International Monetary Fund and the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development, I welcome the representatives of our member countries to the Third Annual Meeting. I am sure that I may speak for all in expressing our appreciation to the United States in offering facilities for meeting here. Many of us have come from very distant countries to participate in these meetings. All of us have left urgent and pressing problems at home, but we are present here because we recognize that in these meetings we are offered the opportunity to promote the interests of our own countries in a way which cannot be done working by ourselves.

This is the second time that I have had the opportunity to welcome you to Washington, and I do so with the greatest pleasure and satisfaction. Yours is a very vital role in the defense of the free world. Your contribution to financial and economic stability among the nations of the world is essential, and the results of these efforts will determine in a very large measure whether or how much each nation can use our resources, generous as they are, in the best interests of all of our people.

John F. Kennedy

Abstract

This is my first opportunity to take part in your Annual Meetings and to welcome you here to Washington—and I do so with genuine pleasure. For you are concerned with the problems which have been among my primary concerns since the day I took office exactly 20 months ago; and in that time I have learned how vital a role is played by the International Monetary Fund and the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development and its affiliated institutions. The work of the International Development Association is particularly important, and this country fully supports the proposal that the Executive Directors develop a program to increase its resources.

Lyndon B. Johnson

Abstract
