The Annual Meetings of the Boards of Governors of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank Group were held in the week of September 21-25 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The opening of joint sessions at the Bella Center was honored by the presence of Their Majesties King Frederik and Queen Ingrid of Denmark, and the opening address was made by Prime Minister Hilmar Baunsgaard. In it he noted that over the past 25 years the Fund and the Bank Group have rendered “great contributions to the efforts designed to improve the standards of living, to provide economic development, and to liberalize world trade.”

The 1970 proceedings of the Boards of Governors dealt with the continuing efforts of these institutions, and the two following articles, “The Bank Group Meeting” and “The Fund Meeting” point out the highlights.
