As part of our 2020 Washington Conference on the Americas virtual series, the Council of the Americas will hold a plenary session featuring David Malpass, president of the World Bank Group, to discuss regional economic prospects and COVID-19 recovery.

Malpass has held the position of president of the World Bank Group since April 2019. He previously served as U.S. Treasury under secretary for international affairs.

For 50 years, the Council of the Americas’ annual Washington Conference on the Americas has been the premier event on the region, bringing together presidents, secretaries, and ministers, as well as the most senior leaders from both the public and private sectors. This annual conference is a platform for the top government, industry, and policy leaders in the hemisphere to discuss and debate the state of regional affairs with a business-relevant focus.

The 2020 Washington Conference on the Americas will be a virtual series of periodic (generally monthly) keynote addresses and interviews with senior leaders, interspersed with high-level panel discussions.

The program will be livestreamed on this page at the time of the event. No registration is required to watch the presentation.

COA members can register to participate in the conversation via the WebEx platform. To request registration information, please contact us at wca2020@as-coa.org.
