On October 17, IMF Managing Director Horst Köhler and World Bank President James D. Wolfensohn—after consultation with the institutions’ Boards of Executive Directors, and with Gordon Brown, the chair of the International Monetary and Financial Committee (IMFC), and Yashwant Sinha, the chair of the Development Committee—announced that they were “pleased to accept the invitation made by the Canadian Finance Minister, Paul Martin, to host meetings of the IMFC and DC in Ottawa on November 17–18.”

They also noted that “these meetings will bring together ministers and central bank governors from around the world to discuss issues of importance to the membership of the IMF and the World Bank, especially including the global economic outlook in the wake of the tragic events of September 11; their impact, in particular, on the poorest; the ongoing work to improve the stability of the international financial system; and preparations for the forthcoming United Nations Conference on Financing for Development.”
